lyrics

RIP (red letter)

I'm falling asleep
Chilled to the bone
Weak at the knee
Hoping to get home in one piece

But maybe I'll divide
Half for the ground
Half for the sky
Who knows till the black shroud pulls aside?

Till then you'll find me
Waiting not to be
Trying to believe
When the song ends we'll sing a loud reprise

I once boldly would leap
Each way that I turned
Seemed so clear to me
Now I trip over my own feet

Just went out for a stroll
Got caught in the rain
It soon turned to snow
Still there are worse days, this I know

I don't have much time
I don’t even own my mind
And I still can't tell you why
When all that I see comes through my eyes

Just like falling asleep
Lay me in my bed
In silence you'll speak
Pray I dream in heavenly peace

But I'm nowhere to be found
Neither the sky
Or in the ground
I'm in everything, I'm all around

There's nothing left of me
But vague fond memories
How strange to arrive only to leave
No more than a here lies
Rest in peace
