The Lyrics Are Below


Nearly Beloved


Last night I dreamt one thousand lies

I could see the dawn through a different set of eyes

There in my slumber passing time

Long live the world resting on its side


I walked the orchard with you

Your hand in mine

In the evergreens drinking wine

I saw the snow fall in black and white

Fram the auburn sky

Last night I lived more than one thousand lives

Not one of them survived


Up through the earth and at dawn I came

I crossed the kingdom through venom pouring rain

In the vacuum of my own brigade

Resurrected to make you mine


Orpheus looked back once

She sailed the underworld

No second chances will be earned

I have returned as a phantom now

To walk the bow and stern

Last night I lived more than one thousand lives

Not one of them survived


If we could do better I know that we would

Maybe admit it now, we're not that good

We keep the needle between zero and one

You play your fiddle, baby, I'll play dumb


Into the pastures of our minds

Goes my nearly beloved and I

Blazing two parallel white lines

Through this broken heart spilt open wide


Time may be on my side

But it's mostly far behind

I was the apple of your eye

Now I'm the boy spinning on a wheel there

Stuck with knives

Last night I lived more than one thousand lives

Not one of them survived
