In the song, Lady Gaga sings:
“Lovers in the night / Poets tryin’ to write / We don’t know how to rhyme / But, d***, we try / But all I really know / You’re where I wanna go / The part of me that’s you will never die / So when I’m all choked up / And I can’t find the words / Every time we say goodbye / Baby, it hurts / When the sun goes down / And the band won’t play / I’ll always remember us this way.”
