So apropos
Saw death on a sunny snow

For every life
Forego the parable
Seek the light
My knees are cold

Running home, running home
Running home, running home

Go find another lover
To bring a, to string along

With all your lies
You're still very lovable
I toured the light
So many foreign roads
For Emma
Forever ago
