"Bird on Your Grave" as written by and Marissa Nadler....
Tomorrow I'm gonna leave a bird on your grave
And say a little prayer for you

Kyle says you've been dead for a couple of months
And I've been thinking you're still here my friend
And I still have your songs in my head
And your face engraved into the glass of me

Tomorrow I'm gonna leave a bird on your grave
And say a little prayer for thee

And he misses you when you're gone
When you're gone, you're gone

Tomorrow I'm gonna leave a bird on your grave
With a note and I'm hoping it will last for days
Faded from flesh they put flowers on your grave
With a great box of cedar where they buried you

    General CommentEvery Marissa Nadler song is exquisitely beautiful. This song is so bittersweet, two people not together but still missing each other and keeping the memories.
