lyrics

with the morning rays
i'm often dragged
to brighter days when
the sun was dripping light
you blinked your eyes
i averted mine
we weren't so different then
you felt the sweat
dampen my dress
but the joke you told
was already old
before you spoke it

flowers bloom and blow
at funerals
so beautiful
but on my wedding day
that same bouquet
seemed out of place
the way he held my wrist
and led me in
it made my skin crawl
to be treated like a gift
some man had been
presented with

this globe's been reeling slow
but it seems i'd known
you lives ago
and all the love we spent
i now regret
but can't forget
so as my boys will fight
i'll wait outside
and watch the sky
and hope the sun will march
along its arc
and bring the dark in

bring the dark in
