Mumford & Sons – Tompkins Square Park lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse 1]

Oh babe, meet me in Tompkins Square Park

I wanna hold you in the dark

One last time

Just one last time

And oh babe, can you tell what’s on my tongue?

Can you guess that I’ll be gone?

With the twilight

With the twilight

[Chorus]

But no flame burns forever, oh no

You and I both know this all too well

And most don’t even last the night

No they don’t, they say they don’t

[Verse 2]

Oh babe, I’ve never been so lost

I wanna hear you lie

One last time

Just one last time

But oh babe, I really wish you would not cry

I only ever told you one lie

When it could have been a thousand

It might as well have been a thousand

[Chorus 2]

But no flame burns forever, oh no

You and I both know this all too well

And most don’t even last the night

No they don’t, they say they don’t

And we can talk it round again girl

Round and round, round and round again

Or we could leave it all tonight

Leave it all just leave it all

[Bridge]

I never tried to trick you babe

I just tried to work it out

But I was swallowed up by doubt

If only things were black and white

Cause I just want to hold you tight

Without holding back my mind

Without holding back my mind

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus 1]

[Outro/Segue]
