Well the day cast down
Lengthy shadows on unfamiliar towns
And I drove 300 miles from the place I call home
And I tipped my hat to the angel of the north
And the sun it set fire to the heavens
On the hills over Sheffield tonight
And I will sail over this countryside
With new friends and old
We are nowhere but man, we're alright

So you can keep your belief in whatever
And I'll wear my cynicism like a tattoo
And while poets try to engineer definitions of love
Oh you know that all I can think of is you
And I just can't wait to see you on Sunday
Far from the traffic and the smoke and the noise
But for this evening I will play back every message that you sent
So I can sleep to the sound of your voice, oh

Now I don't lightly use words like forever
But I will love you 'til the end of today
And in the morning when I remember
Everything that you are
Well I know I'll fall for you over again
Now I know someday this all will be over
And it's hard to say what most will I miss
Just give me one way to spend my last moments alive
And I choose this, I choose this, I choose this,
I choose this, I choose this, I choose this,
I choose this, I choose this, yeah I choose ... this
