She went out and found

her
  
face down on the

out in the

cold.
  
Walked her

way around 
  
A
hill
  
with the sun sinking

down,
  
into the

snow.
  
All the

caps of the

waves 
A
slap
  
like last

hand-
G
claps,
  
and the 
A
dark water dies in a 
Em
crash,
  
is sucked back with a 
D
moan.
  
And the smoke on the

coast —
  
And oh, pil

It’s a dream, now
I’ll describe
Let your mind drift on down, like so
To when the world was young
A big sky, blue of a dead bachelor’s tongue
A new bloom on the rose
So some line someone told says
Even light can get old
Oh, slobbering lovers
Drink-clinking brothers
They don’t have to tell us, cause we know
What a way down
What a ride, what a slide spin-around
What a life to have known
What a time
And how I was singing out in a crowd
Of the thousand most frightening faces I’ve known
And when the lighthouse
Lending us sight finally went out
What a fright we felt
In that night
Friends just shout it out
All the whys and don’t knows
All the cries in our throats
And how right we felt
With our eyes tightly closed
Holding something we broke
And then whimpering sisters
Sobbing well-wishers
It’s over
Just let my hand go
