"I Would Die For You" as written by Matthew Julian Walters and Boo ...
He buried her heart still
He buried her on her own
By the cool ferns
In a rained on river bed

He took her in his arms
He carried her ghost
Through gray stone fields
He could feel her float

She said I, I would die for you
And I, I would die for you
And it all came true
Yeah, it all came true

A love so dark
Against the moon
A silken cord
She spoke too soon

She said I, I would die for you
And I, I would die for you

When he first laid eyes on her
It was like a curse
He felt his heart rise
And gravity in reverse

Her eyes full of hope
Her voice full of mourning
Her lips as red
As a shepard's warning

She said I, I would die for you
And I, I would die for you
And it all came true
Yeah, it all came true

He lay her down
In the gentle earth
And kissed her eyes closed
Like it didn't hurt

He whispered
I, I would die for you
And I, I would die for you
And I, I would die for you
And I, I would die for you
I, I would die for you

And it all came true
Yeah, it all came true

    General CommentMatt Walters did such a fantastic job with this song. I've never heard such a haunting song that would make me only want to love someone even more, until I heard this.

    "He took her in his arms
    He carried her ghost
    Through grey stone fields
    He could feel her float."

    These lines are the most powerful I've ever seen in a song, they describe the most beautiful moments of life, when one's soul finally departs from the physical body, but the narrator has loved this woman with such a fiery passion, that he can feel her soul leaving to find shelter above. I wish I could cry, because I would damn sure cry over this song. Well done, Matt.
