Oh, how the dusk just takes and takes
Take for instance this empty space:
That spot by the fireplace, where Victor would sit
His trick with the napkin still unsolved by most
And there on the couch I can still hear Amanda
Remember that evening, she just couldn't stop laughing

Oh, how the dusk just takes and takes them

And though tomorrow's Victors and Amandas
Are waiting in the wings and, come next dawn, will take their places
(well-prepared, scripts and lines all memorized)
It won't be quite the same
No, it won't be quite the same

I've long lost interest in twilight
And when I hear dusk call, I'll willingly follow
Though not heavy-hearted, nor laden with sorrow,
But with the sweet prospect of revisiting friends
