Life is easier when one of us is dead...
Life is easier when one of us is dead
Hey
I will wait a year
No one starts to hear an accidental fall
And they won't suspect a thing at all

Wait for the summer
We'll sleep when we wanna
Don't tell your mother
We'll leave when we
We'll leave when we wanna

And I have dreamed about it
Now I read about it
And I can't grieve about it
And I can't hey

Someone help me
Someone help me
Someone help me please
Someone help me
Someone help me
Someone help me please

It's an accidental fall
And they won't suspect a thing at all

Wait for the summer
We'll leave when we wanna
Look at your mother
Is that who ya
Is that who ya wanna?

Tell my lady here what I was drinking
And in not too long, won't she start screaming?
What a proud old man, what was she thinking?
I hear her voice sometimes, when I've been dreaming

Tell my lady here what I was dreaming
And in not too long, what was I thinking?
What a proud old man, won't she start screaming?
I hear voice sometimes, when I've been'
When I've been drinking

Rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down

I killed my baby with a bullet,
One last shot right into her head
And I'm falling falling falling down

Sink into the river!
Sink into the river!

Tell my lady here what I was drinking
I killed my baby with a bullet,
One last shot right into her head
And I'm falling falling falling down

Sink into the river!
Sink into the river!

I hear her voice sometimes
When I've been
When I've been drinking

Rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down

    General CommentKilled my lady here when I was drinking
    Held her neck too long, won't she stop screaming?...

    ...I killed my baby with a bullet,
    one last shot right into her head...

    This is an amazing song, but check out the live KEXP version.

    General Commentpretty sure you're right about the second line, the first line I listened to the live version a few times as well to try and get it. not sure (also how would she start screaming if she's dead :)

    Anyway there's some proper way to get corrections made, just too lazy to do it, feel free.

    General CommentThis makes murder sound hip and cool.

    Though everyone knows that arson is what's REALLY in this year.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure he's singing "I'm right here right here followin' behind" instead of "rising.. falling down"
