If all my love is somewhere in the pastures, and though my body will soon be turned to coal, well I guess if I’m the only one that’s fighting, I’ll still be left here when this city turns to gold.

Hold me down, and wake my body up. Holy light, take me down with those, with trembling bones.

The sun will rise beneath me and open up your day, relive my sins and forgive me my simplest mistakes, see it’s true this heart has lost its beat so I’ll live on in yours instead, but I will never weigh it down with my regrets.

This is how the old man comes to take me, this is how the old man takes a life, this is how the old man comes to break me, slipping down the sidelines of a world that’s in your mind.

See the sun will rise beneath me and open up your day, relive my sins and forgive me my simplest mistakes, see it’s true this heart has lost its beat so I’ll live on in yours instead, but I will never weigh it down with my regrets.

If all my love is somewhere in the pastures, and though my body will soon be turned to coal, well I guess if I’m the only one that’s fighting, I’ll still be left here when this city turns.
