Come, come out of the dark and play
Be gone, take another holiday
Don't grow, you can't stay

Life, will you ever make a man of me?
In flight is all I ever want to be
My unborn child, so much to say
The light
The spark
Scattered through the lovers' snow
Whispered through the breeze unknown
You missed the greatest show

Break, breaking off is all we do
Awake, but sleeping at the same time too
We're lovers, but we're starved

Grace, make another star-lit sky
A place, everything we meant to buy
With the shadows of these cards
The game
The joke
What else could I hope to know
Something always made us choke

Embers
Some would say
Awake, asleep
It's the greatest show on earth
A whole world celebrates your birth
One child I'll never know

    General CommentThis is one of the most heartbreaking songs I've ever heard. To me this song is pretty obviously about a miscarriage.

    General CommentTwo corrections, I think. "LIFE, will you ever make a man of me?"
    and
    "We're lovers. But we're STARVED."
