Empire In Decline Lyrics

Don't know why
But looking at the sky I see we're through
Don't know what for
But sugar, there's no more me and you

We could fight against the tide
But we both know deep inside

Our love is like an empire in decline
Baby, I can read the signs
That's why I've got to say
Our love is like an abandoned carousel
Near a bombed-out band shell
On a dried-up midway

The best of times
Sugar cubes and limes and sunny days
That's what we had
So baby, don't feel bad as it decays

There's no point in hanging on
When we know the spark is gone

Our love is like a forgotten monument
We've forgotten what it meant
But we're standing here in awe
Our love is like a ruin in the sun
Majestic and undone
By our one fatal flaw

But I promise I'll remember
I'll remember
I'll remember

I can't say when
Now turned into then but I'm afraid
I know that he
Will take the place of me so if I stayed

I'd be standing on your wings
For the sake of bygone things

Our love is like a crumbling pyramid
After everything we did
We are buried in the sand
Our love is like the writing on a tomb
Or a cobweb-covered room
Where our future was planned

And the band did march in tight formation
Its brass and cymbals all ablaze
The air it played was filled with exaltation
But it was only counting down the days
Yes, the harmonies did gather in the twilight
And for a while it truly seemed as if
The song of us would not be gone from my sight
But they were only marching off a cliff

But I promise I'll remember

Our love is like a Soviet parade
You can feel the glory fade
And all we want is to be free
Our love is like a forest gone to blade
And where once there was shade
Is only sunburned debris

Our love is like a palace turned to dust
But bow down we must
When the old bells toll
Our love is like a gridlocked motorcade
That a sniper's disarrayed
From some distant grassy knoll

Our love is like an empire in decline
And what was once yours and mine
Has come all unwound
Our love is like a version of the past
When a legendary blast
Burned our shadows on the ground

But I promise I'll remember
