The walls of our home
Are letting in light
But we'll sleep tonight
Oh, we'll sleep tonight

The last of the meal
Is wasting away
They could feed the ghosts
From those dying plates

Evening came in shocks of light
The fireworks burn through our wedding night
Oh, the sky fell faster than the twilight
The twilight

Ooh...

You in your suit
And blazes of red
As they raise the roof
From our honeymoon bed

The flowers arrived
In sickly sweet white
And my father smiled
Oh, my father smiled

Evening came in shocks of light
The fireworks burn through our wedding night
Oh, the sky fell faster than the twilight
The twilight

Evening came in shocks of light
(Gather your kin in the sight of the Lord)
The fireworks burn through our wedding night
(Freedom is coming for you, coming for you)
Oh, the sky fell faster than the twilight
(Dearly departed, we gather no more)
The twilight

Ooh...

Evening came in shocks of light
The fireworks burn through our wedding night
Oh, the the sky fell faster than the twilight
(Gather your kin in the sight of the Lord)
The twilight
