Mewithoutyou - Dying Is Strange And Hard lyrics

rate me

I have my pictures of you, you don't look back at me<br />

A smile I'd almost forgotten, bruises I don't see<br />

Never forgive you for a sky turned from gray to black<br />

Come out and kiss me, darling<br />

I promise I'll kiss you back.<br />

<br />

A new head on my shoulder,<br />

A needle in my ear<br />

Every kind word brings new pain<br />

Instead of my eyes,<br />

Her reflection in the mirror.<br />

<br />

I have a sickness, but I'm not the only one<br />

Even in health ...<br />

In eachother's arms, they're wasting away<br />

Sickened just as I am and crippled with disease<br />

A song comes from above<br />

I look up -- there's a tree and a small brown bird<br />

Even the sparrows have built a nest<br />

But we, poor fools, have built nothing<br />

What a shame not to know that you're dying<br />

Tell us we're dying, tell us again.<br />

<br />

I have a sickness<br />

The sparrows built a nest<br />

My crippled, twisted body is swallowed by the earth<br />

As my broken head finds rest.
