Lyrics

It's hard to see through dust and bones
Beneath my feet the friends I'll never know
It's hard to breathe where flowers grow
Beneath the sheets is where I'm lying low

Here she comes to carry me home again
Shining like the sun
One by one, watching the lights go out
Life had just begun
It's automatic
What's done is done

It's hard to know which way I should go
When I closed my eyes, I should've have turned and run
It's hard to breathe where flowers grow
Beneath the sheets is where I'm lying low

Here she comes to carry me home again
Shining like the sun
One by one, watching the lights go out
Life had just begun
It's automatic
What's done is done

Oh, we are the lucky ones
So, if you love someone
Just let them believe...
