lyrics

We dance within what could have been
Upon a floor of polished jade--
Apparitions who believe themselves alive,
Shadows singing in the shade
A haunted moon begins to grin
Over the hills behind your eyes,
Our haunted star, I saw it fall,
Into the ocean of lost time,
Into the ocean of lost time.

Counting wishes in the raindrops,
Upon a windshield in the rain,
Counting wishes in the raindrops,
Windshield wipe them all away.

We drink the wine that never was,
Knock back an empty silver cup--
Fools partaking in the banquet of the elves
Never seem to get enough.
The haunted violin begins
Another melancholy tune,
My haunted heart can't help but break
Beneath the madness of the moon,
Beneath the madness of this moon.

Rambling roses line the railroad,
In the morning in the rain,
She blew me kisses from the window,
From the window of the train.
Now I'm
Counting wishes in the raindrops
Upon a windshield in the rain,
Counting wishes in the raindrops,
Windshield wipe them all away.

We linger til the lanterns dim,
And every drunkard falls asleep.
We strain our souls to hear the whisper of the Rose,
Soft as a thought upon the breeze,
Softer than a thought upon the breeze.

She whispers to me in a language
That I can almost understand.
Silver feathers in the water,
Winged shadows in the sand...

Counting wishes in the raindrops,
Upon a windshield in the rain,
Counting wishes in the raindrops,
Windshield wipe them all away.
