"To Love is To Bury" as written by Margo Timmins and Michael Edward Timmins....
I buried him down by the river
'cause that's where he liked to be
And every night when the moon is high
I go there and weep openly
He and I were married
By this river 'neath this willow tree

And with God and friends witnessing it
He pledged his life to me
To me he was Earth
And I rooted in his soil
I to he was Sky vast and free
Of the burdens from which he toiled

Then one night a terrible fight
Words spoken better left unsaid
With his wedding vows ringing in my ears
He gave his life to me
They say to love is to bury
Those demons from which we all hide
But tonight by this river 'neath this willow tree
Becoming one of Earth and Sky

    General CommentThis was recorded as part of "The Trinity Sessions". The whole album was recorded in a church in Toronto, in one day, with the band standing around a single ambisonic microphone. It is legendary now. They are such a good band, technically and melodically, and nobody has the same philosophy as they have in their songwriting.
