Duncan Sheik A Body Goes Down Lyrics

Last updated:

Once in a while a man comes along
Even his failures were favorite songs
Oh to have made something so unsurpassed
As certain things fall away some certain things last

A body goes down in the Mississippi waters
Weighted by a beauty, afraid of its light
Notify your holy men, console your sons and daughters
And tell me one more time, what is just, what is right

Chances are good we spread blasphemous lies
Safe to say nobody knew what was inside
Of course there is grace and those halos of pain
Maybe he sang what he came here to sing

A body goes down in the Mississippi waters
Weighted by a beauty, afraid of its light
Notify your holy men, console your sons and daughters
And tell me one more time, what is just, what is right

Speed on to the next world, speed on to the next life
Better I'm sure by far
Orpheus driven, treasures given
Heal the most broken of hearts

Speed on, speed on, speed on
