The Gaslight Anthem — 1000 Years lyrics

Full moon I know in the town I live
Steady as she waits
Seems as though she yearns for me
Calls me by my name
Sometimes she says come to me
Kiss me, wanna play?
And other nights she's just hangin'
With the stars

And I've seen the patience through all the mistakes
And who's gonna save you now?
And ayayay, ayayay, it's alright, she says
Once upon a time I lived a perfect night
Ayay, ayayay in another life she says
In a dream of mine from 1000 years ago

Don't look back, I heard a voice
And know that I couldn't think
The pictures then were black and white
And the details were in-between
I heard about a woman once
Who did everything ever asked of her
She died last week and her last words were
It wasn't worth it

And I've seen the patience through all the mistakes
And who's gonna save you now?
And ayayay, ayayay, it's alright, she says
Once upon a time I lived a perfect night
Ayay, ayayay in another life she says
In a dream of mine from 1000 years ago
