Requiem

lyrics

The night is much brighter here by the fire
Pine needles cushion the place where you lay
Insects and airplanes are buzzing above us
It’s like hearing a requiem play

I didn’t want to – to have to kill you
But you said you couldn’t keep that kind of secret
And in a panic I clutched at your throat

I’ve been running on an emotion
A brightness inside of my head
Somebody get me off of my mountain
Before one more is dead

In the light of the morning I think I can see them
Snaking their way up the long mountain road
I wasn’t dreaming I really was screaming
Out my confession to valleys below

I didn’t want to – to have to kill you
But you said you couldn’t keep that kind of secret
And in a panic I clutched at your throat

I’ve been running on an emotion
A brightness inside of my head
Somebody get me off of my mountain
Before one more is dead

The night is much brighter here by the fire
Pine needles cushion the place where you lay
Insects and airplanes are buzzing above us
It’s like hearing a requiem play
