lyrics

The Screech of the tires
Child didn’t make a sound
Knuckles turned white
The car flipped the tree stopped
The willow gonna weep before the shadows can hide
I’d love to just hold you
And tell you, my darling, everything will be all right

Lay me down but please don’t take her
Lay me down before hallowed eyes

The glare not the shadows stole me for a second
Suddenly a curve
The sky came, the ground came
Over and over
The willow weeps down
The last thing I saw was the reflection in the mirror
Colorful were her eyes

Lay me down but please don’t take her
Lay me down before hallowed eyes
Lay me down but please don’t let her cry

I’d love to just hold you
Remember my darling
I’ll be watching you from the sky

Lay me down but please don’t take her
Lay me down before hallowed eyes
Lay me down but please don’t let her die
