Your heart's in the wrong place
Say it with your mouth
I pull my guns from the desert, just in case you ever came back around

Put your clothes in the water and lay down at your side
You keep real still and quiet
You can make it through the night

It ain't no sin to shed your skin
Go dancing in your bones
The water's deep and your body's sweet
With lungs, the way to go

Take your face to the river
Down where the water is wide
And if you ask real nice-like
I just might save your life

    General Commentthe lyrics on the dead will walk dear become much, much clearer when you realize that they collectively tell the story of a man murdering his wife/partner.

    from last.fm: The National Lights is the primary song-writing project of Jacob Thomas Berns. Assisted by the arrangements Ernest Christian Kiehne Jr. (The Bland Allisons, Sonya Cotton), Jacob Thomas sets out on his full-length debut, The Dead Will Walk, Dear, to forgive the past while compounding its wrongs. Stirred by the fiction of the American Gothic, The Dead Will Walk, Dear roughly documents the passions, trials and regrets of a Midwestern murder.
