Cover me in fire
Drop me down to the deepest, darkest ocean
So I never have to feel that way again

Color on the carpet, seven eyes on the ceiling
There's a feeling that comes over you
When you know that something has changed forever

Don't lose your wings
'Til you learn how to sing yourself to sleep
I know it seems funny
But maybe we just said goodbye

I feel strange enough to cry
Strawberry marigold smile

Please don't bring me down
With that look on your face
Because I almost didn't make it
And one day you just might know how that feels

I heard the mermaids singing once
When I was very small
But now the sound of the traffic and human voices
Wake us 'til we drown

Don't lose your wings
'Til you learn how to sing yourself to sleep
I know it seems funny
But maybe we just said goodbye

I feel strange enough to cry
Strawberry marigold smile

Seven angels, seven plagues
And the trumpet and the saved
I tell you man, if it was me on that beast
I would not have let you fuck with me like that

It's dangerous to see beyond
The visions that we breathe
But I can hold it in my hand and know
That there is something to this that will never die

Don't lose your wings
'Til you learn how to sing yourself to sleep
I know it seems funny
But maybe we just said goodbye

And I feel strange enough to cry
Strawberry marigold smile
Strawberry marigold smile
Strawberry marigold smile

    General CommentLOVE this song

    my favorite part would have to be

    It's dangerous to see beyond
    The visions that we breathe
    But I can hold it in my hand and know
    That there is something to this that will never die


    I somehow live by that line. Amazing

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. I love "Don't lose your wings / Til you learn how to sing yourself to sleep". It's such a cryptic yet emotional song. I love it!
