Coffins

MisterWives

I gave my hand for you to hold
I gave my love that you went and sold
Exchanged our song for another
Can't blame, this dead flame
That once glowed like no other

How do you soften
The thought of carrying coffins?
We were so alive
Only to see us wither and die

You said you'd stand
Even if this would all fall
Your yearning, yielded
When you will hit the wall

I shook your ears
Tried to make you hear my call
But you were long gone
No hope in a sunless dawn

How do you soften
The thought of carrying coffins?
We were so alive
Only to see us wither and die
Oh, why the soil run dry?

And I never ever thought
I'd hear these words be said
Now I lay here in an unmade bed
Empty stomachs unable to be fed
Your ego swallowed you
And from there you fled

So far away, could not find your way back
Walked down the path
Where feet slip through the cracks

Where feet slip through the cracks
Could not find your way back
Where feet slip through the cracks
Could not find your way back

How do you soften
The thought of carrying coffins?
We were so alive
Only to see us wither and die
Oh, why the soil run dry?
