Parade
Matchbox Twenty

Parade

When the slow parade went past
And it felt so good
You knew it couldn't last
All too soon the end is gonna come without a warning
Then you ought to just go home

And the way it all went back
And somebody said "come on, it's getting late."

And you fought to hold my hand
If you just look the other way
Now you wish that you had stayed

And there so much more that you could see if you just stick around
And all the street light secrets
Whisping for you to come back out.

Oh, no
There's so much more that you need to work out
Oh, no
And you don't want that parade to leave you now
Right now

And the days are all the same
In a town so big and no one knows your name
And the people fade away and all the the stars are just a flicker
And you're left there all alone

When there's so much more that you could see if you just stick around
And all the street light secrets
Whispering for you to come back out

Oh, no
There's so much more that you need to work out
Oh, no
And you don't want that parade to leave you now

When the music is over,
But the song stays in your head

Oh, no
There's so much more that you need to work out
Oh, no
And you don't want that parade to leave you now

Yeah
And there's so much more that you need to work out
Yeah
And you don't want that parade to leave you now
