I’m coming downstairs
You better let me in
Unfold those black wings you’ve been hiding in
Bring me that softer light
And kissing goodnight, pull me in

The creaking floor boards
Oh, how the water moans
I keep on calling you,
“Oh, Darling, please come home!”
But if it’s a ghost that you want I’ve got some sheets to cut hauntingly

Shed that dress, dear
Shed that dragging day
I ain’t your jailer
This ain’t your father’s wake
And who told you love is a crime?
I hope you spat in their eye
Run to me

Through kitchen windows we watch the winter fall
Let down your hair, girl
Let those tigers paw
And if you stay the night I’ll give you the fuck of your life,
Shoes and all

To bearclaw bathtubs where lovers drained in cold
And when they found them there was nothing but bones
And if you must capitalize on the love in our eyes, blind me please

Cause in rolls the reaper, slowly undressing thin
He wants our lantern
He wants out wolfish grin
But I want a horse with no reins
I want a love you can’t sell, holding true, holding true
