Last Orders

I'll love you 'til the dance is over
I'll love you 'til the music dies
'Til they tear down the stars from the rafters
'Til they unhook the moon from the sky

I'll love you 'til my words unravel
I'll love you 'til the clocks unwind
'Till eternity is calling last orders
In that place on the outskirts of time

Jukebox's playing 'love me tender'
The king is singing sweet and low
In your arms I surrender
I'd be a fool if I let you go

I'll love you 'til tin turns to silver
I'll love you 'til jade turns to gold
'Til every last rhyme has been written
And even the new moon is old

The loneliness comes to my window
The Sorrow's knocking at my door
It don't mean nothing to me
'Cause I don't work for them anymore

I'll love you 'til death has no meaning
I'll love you 'til life is a dream
'Til all the cares ever we carried
I float in like feathers downstream

I'll love 'til the river climbs the mountain
I'll love you 'til fish rule the land
'Til the mirror can't see our reflection
And the bells of goodbye never sound

The line is: 'Til all the cares ever we carried
ARE FLOATING like feathers downstream.
