I throw this to the wind
But what if I was right
Well, did you trust your noble dreams
And gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?
The night will always win
The night has darkness on its side
I throw this to the wind

I miss your stupid face
I miss your bad advice
I try to clothe your bones with scratchy
Super 8s, exaggerated stories and old tunes
But never by the moon
And not the state I'm in
The night will always win

I throw this to the wind
But what if I was right
Well, did you trust your noble dreams
And gentle expectations to the mercy of the night
The night will always win
The night has darkness on its side
I throw this to the wind

I miss your stupid face
I miss your bad advice
I try to clothe your bones with scratchy
Super 8s, exaggerated stories and old tunes
But never by the moon
And never the state that I'm in
The night will always win
