Love cried on the bridge of starving
So cold, first night
Up here on the bridge of night forsaken me, but listen!

Slow... bleed for what?

Up here on the bridge tonight
To fall would be so nice

Chase this misery out of the town
Bury my face into this ground
Now jump... now jump... jump !

Into this smile, mesmerised
See what you are - she wants you
Up here I can see for miles, judging flies by their size
I'm up here because I wanted to die
All I hear, like a dying messiah
I'm up here because I wanted to die
All I hear... I lie here

Don't cry
Don't cry

Now jump
Bury my face into this ground
jump...

    General CommentAbsolutely mind-ravaging song, a classic story of a suicide, done in the true cowboy fashion that is the Fields of the Nephilim.

    I believe it is, indeed, "such a fire as burns inside". That makes more sense. "Up here I can see for miles" and "I'm up here because I wanted to die" are such good lines. Heart-pouding chorus..."Now jump"!
