lyrics

The Day I Die.

If you ever walk the line, between the Devil and the waves,
You never care to much for what anybody says
In the shadows of the corner,
There hides a whispered prayer,
A promisette, in silhouette,
A note spun on the air.

My fall from grace was replaced, by a feeling shaped in stone,
an empty bottle on the shelf and a song to hear alone.
When your heart has emptied of all tears and there's nowhere left to hide,
you're like a carcass washed up to the shore,
a soul lost on the tide.

This is the day that I die,
This is the day that I die,
This is the day that I die for you, for you.

Well I sing a lonely tune and I play a lonely note,
I tried to read in between the lines that you wrote.
Well I caught the heat in silver, and I got burned by the flame,
and I've seen enough that's good enough to drive a soul insane.

This is the day that I die,
This is the day that I die,
This is the day that I die for you, for you.
