"Rachel" as written by and Marissa Nadler....
Oh what a day to dance with you
Oh what a day to die
I held you once in the palm of my hand
And a fine old time it was

Rachel I fear your death will come
And leave me alone to die
Rachel I fear your death will come
And gone to the dogs and the dimes

The men would come to you and me
We'd freeze them like a light
The men would come to you and me
We'd freeze them like a light

Say farewell Maria dear
Your bones and teeth and skin
Say farewell Maria dear
My you've grown so thin

Oh what a day to dance with you
Oh what a day to die
I had you once in the palm of my hand
And a fine old time it was

The men would come to you and me
We'd freeze them like a light
The men would come to you and me
We'd freeze them like a light

Say farewell Maria dear
Your bones and teeth and skin
Say farewell Maria dear
My you've grown so thin!

    General CommentJust thought I'd mention, overall, death seems to be a reoccuring theme throughout this entire, excellent album.
