Century After Century

This song is by Idlewild and appears on the album The Remote Part (2002).

Since you're breathing
Is it all that space can fill
So just by looking in
I'll be looking still
(Find and follow stories well)
You make it except for
A newspaper
The headline's telling me
That fortune favours the brave
I've never been known to be that brave
What I want is on its way out
All I needed was an easier way to stay
Walking around the city
As the light fades
Is that all that you remain
I'm thinking about these promises
That I have ever made
I know what they will never say
I know what they will never say

Century after century may remain

And if I need to remember
That the entire earth is outside this window
So close the windows
Keep the curtains shut forever
And if I need to remember
The entire earth is outside this room
So close the windows
Close the windows

Isn't it romantic to be romantic
When you don't understand what you love
Or if a word like that could ever mean anything
But what you want is on its way out
I didn't hear
Cheerleading for creative writers
Your cheekbones
Don't taste of anything at all
Its on its way out
Its just an easier way to stay

Talking about a city
That the light mades
Is it all that you remain
It's the same story told
But its these stories that don't fade
I know what they will never say
I know what they will never say

Century after century may remain

Is it all that you remain
Is it all that you remain
Is it all that you remain
Is it all that you remain
Is it all that you remain
(I know what they will never say)
Is it all that you remain
(I know what they will never say)
Is it all that you remain
(I know what they will never say)
Is it all that you remain
(I know what they will never say)
Is it all that you remain
Is it all that you remain
