Let the makeup be tasteful
Let the formal words be few
Let someone else take care of you
Let the kids put the fun back in funeral
There's no fault to be forgiven
Sex and death have always been
Two kissing cousins
Let those near early age
Say the secret is if you're careful
You don't ask for much
Question of what the purpose is
Doesn't matter all that much

And it's too late for us
For them to say of us
That we weren't laid
In a bed that we made
That we died young
And there will be no pity
We should be so lucky
That we should see
The traces they leave... behind

Returning means two different things
When you're waiting in a waiting room
Leaks the lullabies, compete in the eyes of you
Nurse please don't, please don't, please don't
Leave me this way

The other girls I know, I know, I know
Know you can't stay, so it's okay

And it's too late for us
For them to say of us
That we weren't laid
In a bed that we made
That we died young
And there will be no pity
We should be so lucky
That we should see
The traces they leave

Highlight
Breath in the cold
Brass rubbed gold
