Edward Is Deadward - text

Farewell to Ed, for Ed is dead
The careless boy is laid to rest
A velvet floor to place his head
An empty bed, a wooden chest

Still beautiful in death
The moisture fogs my breath
Two hundred lowered eyes
A hundred mute goodbyes

I never thought your threats would come good
You never did what you said you would

Your mum and dad, they look so old
All huddled up in inky cloth
I'm not surprised, this room is cold
It's empty too, it stinks of loss

I sat with Dan and drank some beer
We hadn't spoken since last year
I took his hand, led him upstairs
Silently drew his body near

I couldn't see, missed you so much
Missed you so much I had to fuck
Between your sheets, a childhood clean
The pillows painted with your dreams

I didn't want to stop and think
How I should have said a thousand things

Yeah, but, hey, like we agreed, I will be brave
I will pour whiskey on your grave
Smoke cigarettes amongst the stones
Sprinkle champagne upon your bones

If burial restricts your view
I'll bring the city here to you
I'll pack the river and the clock
Wrap it into a picnic box

With golden bulbs and crystal mugs
My dancing heels will feel the mud
We'll disco boogie 'til the dawn
I'll teach this village how to mourn

A living room in future times
You're just a face above my fire
A funeral sound, a distant chime
I'll think of this and I will cry

Perhaps I'll drop my task
The sound of shattered glass
Thought I'd forgot at last
Some things just never pass

Easy to say, hard to believe
There'll come a day that I don't grieve
Until the time my body leaves
I will regret that you don't breathe
