Lyrics

Out in the starless darkness, the city swallowed itself
Traffic signals switched from green to red
I searched your body for evidence under a dogwood canopy
Your hand in mine, frozen in time
Who would have guessed life as we knew was ending?

So don't cry,
We'll be alright
Once I get you cleaned up babe, we'll run away

But if you die before I wake,
Have my heart, it's yours to take
A sacrifice for our sake-
I'd give my life for you any day

When daylight drew the sickness, I brushed the bangs from your face
While watching your eyes turn from green to red
Back in our old apartment, collecting dust on a shelf
The memories of you and me incinerate from under fervid timber

So don't cry,
We'll be alright
Once we get you picked up babe, we'll run away

But if you die before I wake,
Have my heart, it's yours to take
A sacrifice for our sake-
I'd give my life for you any day

Love of mine, call out if it eats you from the inside
Out of time, but be sure I'll be all yours on the other side
Sometimes its harder to stay alive

(chorus)
