Ourselves the Elves
These Nights
[Verse 1]
Tonight, I lead a sober life
No, it’s not you, it’s my current disposition
Before you kick me out this bar
Sit down and listen to my proposition

[Pre-Chorus]
We could go dancing some night else
But now I want to rest
We should just walk home, hold my hand
Trust me, it's for the best

[Chorus]
(Dancing some night else)
I want to rest
(Walk home hold my hands)
It’s for the best

[Post-Chorus]
These days, things are getting too old
These days, nothing lasts

[Verse 2]
So tonight, let’s lead the sober life
Instead of alcohol, let’s drink the cold milk
That we squeezed out of our udders of
Our wisdom and some good and bad experience

[Pre-Chorus]
We could go dancing
But now I want to rest
We should just walk home, hold my hand
Trust me, it's for the best

[Chorus]
(Dancing some night else)
I want to rest
(Walk home hold my hands)
It’s for the best
[Post-Chorus]
These days, things are getting too old
These days, nothing lasts

[Verse 3]
So in this sober life we lead
Let’s lie down on the carpet by the fire
Despite all short-lived things
We can still talk about our big dreams and desires

[Outro]
