Come, come out of the dark and play
Be gone, take another holiday
Don't groan, you can stay

Life, will you ever make a man of me
In flight, is all I ever want to be
My unborn child, so much to say
A Light, A spark

Scattered through the lovers snow
Whispered in the breeze unknown
You missed the greatest show

Break, breaking off is all we do
Awake, but sleeping at the same time too
We lovers but we're stars
Grace, make another starlit sky
The place, everything we meant to buy
With the shadow of these cards
A game, a joke

What else could I hope to know?
Something always made us choke
Embers some would say
Awake, Asleep

Its the greatest show on earth
The whole world celebrates your birth
One child, they'll never know

    General CommentThis is one of the most heartbreaking songs I've ever heard. To me this song is pretty obviously about a miscarriage.

    General CommentTwo corrections, I think. "LIFE, will you ever make a man of me?"
    "We're lovers. But we're STARVED."
