​Graveside

This song is by The Tiger Lillies and appears on the album Death And The Bible (2004).

Underneath these stones
Bleached and rotting bones
And the girl I loved the best

Maggots do their work
There beneath the earth
Loved her more than all the rest

Tears begin to fall
Every time I call
There beside her graveside

Love it never lasts
Everything does pass
Everything that's good does die

Mists are coming down
Memories resound
Winter night's chill does fall

As maggots gnaw her bones
I make my way home
It's better not to love at all
