call me out of my hovel;
I long to see the sun.
my legs try to carry me
but my heart weighs me down.
burn this in my eyes until I see your outline,
and carve this on my lips
until you see my blood drip.

and just that I
can pen these words tonight
is proof enough for me
that there is more than meets the eye,
so this is my simple lullaby
to try and put to rest any loneliness inside.

call me out of my hovel;
I long to see the sun.
my legs try to carry me
but my heart weighs me down.
burn this in my eyes until I see your outline,
and carve this on my lips
until you see my blood drip.

and just that I
can pen these words tonight
is proof enough for me
that there is more than meets the eye,
so this is my simple lullaby
to try and put to rest any loneliness inside.

farewell
farewell
farewell
farewell

    General CommentThe "These Ruins EP" version of this song (called Under A Lamp, Under the Moon) is cool if you can find it. These guys are native to my home town so I was lucky enough to catch them in small venues back when they were changing their name from "A Long Story Short".
    The Under the Moon version has a better ending with an extra riff. I can AIM it if anyone wants.
