lyrics

There were stars draped over me
On a blue bright and clean
And they all gathered there
My love said a prayer for me
Nowhere to be seen

Every evening
I see her leaving
Wildflowers on my stone

Up here floating
Out of body
Never been so alone

How can I stay so far away
When the one I love is below
I want to go
Down below

So I watch as she goes in her new black clothes
Hurriedly I can see her move through the hills
When she reaches my grave, my love bold and brave
Empties a bottle of pills

Her vision blackens
Body weakens
She falls upon my stone

As she enters
Sleep eternal
I can hear my love moan,

“How can I stay so far away
When the one I love is below
I want to go
Down below”
