"A Sudden Death" as written by and John Davies Cale....
Day after day , they go
They go to gain just a
Little more control
And when they took yours away
I couldn't sleep at all
I lay in bed for days


I died a sudden death
I made an awful mess
I didn't stand a chance
I didn't stand a chance
‘Cause when we where our best

I could care less if people
Bred themselves to death
Oh, but now that you are gone
I just know that everything is wrong
Don't leave me alone now

    General CommentIt's about loss. I think the girl who's singing it has lost someone very dear to her. And it felt like she lost herself at the same time...

    I LOVE this song. Can't believe no one has commented on it yet..
