lyrics

Take my hand and take the lead, I need to leave
We have been walking these shadowed streets
For too long
Through an epoch unruined, a city of ghosts
Of artists and armies, princes and popes
Let’s climb the hill ‘til we can look back again
Into the face of the glorious dead
Up at San Miniato tonight
Let’s both be fuck-ups, let’s both be free
As San Miniato might want us to be
I want to see the dawn light in the trees
And map out a future in the dust at our feet
Up at San Miniato tonight
Your cigarette’s burning like a firefly
I can feel the world turning as the summer sun dies
Up at San Miniato tonight
