"C'est la Mort" as written by and Joy Elizabeth Williams John White....
Swan dive down eleven stories high
Hold your breath until you see the light
You can sink to the bottom of the sea
Just don't go without me

Go get lost where no one can be found
Drink so long and deep until you drown
Say your goodbyes but darlin' if you please
Don't go without me

C'est la vie, c'est la mort
(Such is life, such is death)
You and me
Forevermore

Lets walk on the road that has no end
Steal away where only angels tread
Heaven or hell or somewhere in between
Cross your heart and take me with you please
Don't go
Please don't go
Don't go without me

    General CommentNow this is a song that that goes beyond "...'til death do us part"

    I'd have these engraved in my wedding ring.

    My InterpretationEven in a seemingly destructive partnership, there's love and healing in the alliance. God, but I love this song.

    Song MeaningSo this is my favorite song, it is about a person who is very depressed and they want to die but their lover tells them that if they go they'll go, so ' cross your heart to take me when you leave' is saying that they can't live without them. So this is why this song is so beautiful because even though the person is depressed they'll always have somebody.
