A Murder Of One
Blue morning
Wrapped in strands of fist and bone
Curiosity Kitten
Doesn't have to mean you're on your own
You can look outside your window
He doesn't have to know
We can talk a while baby
We can take it nice and slow

All your life is such a shame
All your love is just a dream

Well are you happy where you're sleeping
Does he keep you safe and warm
Does he tell you when you're sorry
Does he tell you when you're wrong?
Well, I've been watching you for hours
It's been years since we were born
We were perfect when we started
I've been wondering where we've gone

All your life is such a shame
All your love is just a dream

Well I dreamt I saw you walkin'
Up a hillside in the snow
Casting shadows on the winter sky
As you stood there counting crows
One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for girls and four for boys
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret never to be told

Well there's a bird that nests inside you
Sleeping underneath your skin
When you open up your wings to speak I wish you'd let me in.

All your life is such a shame
All your love is just a dream
Open up your eyes
You can see the flames of your wasted life
You should be ashamed


And you don't want to waste your life baby
You don't wanna waste your life now darlin'
You don't wanna waste your life baby
You don't wanna waste your life now darlin'
And you don't wanna waste your life now baby,
I said you don't wanna waste your life now darlin'
You don't wanna waste your life now baby
You don't wanna
You don't wanna waste your life now darlin'

Change

I said I will walk along these hillsides in the summer 'neath the sunshine,
I am feathered by the moonlight fallin' down on me,

I said I will walk along these hillsides in the summer 'neath the sunshine,
I am feathered by the moonlight

Change
