  • Sing me a song.
    I know we've used up every dawn,
    And yet I wonder
    When the scholars find our bones
    A thousand years from now under
    All the ashes of the earth,
    Will we be together?
    The only thing I know for sure.

    The plates may shift
    And slit your wrists,
    But wear your scars.
    I will follow you through the dark.

    Don't be afraid.
    This is the last night of our lives.
    Buried in flames.
    So kiss me one more time tonight.
    In your darkest night
    When all is lost,
    I will be your light,
    At whatever cost.

    Let the plaster flow into
    The space our bodies used
    To occupy.
    Let it be a record of
    The love that buried us alive
    Underneath the sands of time.
    A testament that even after death
    Love survives.

    Exit the vein.
    Exit the lungs.
    Exit the body.
    Never the heart. Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
