lyrics

If Heaven should beckon I'd ask you don't cry;
there's things more important than this.
If I were to ask would you pluck out your eyes
and follow me blind through the mist?
If I were to tell you all how much I cared,
I never would finish the list.
If I were to sing to you one last time
is this the song you would pick?

Not a bird in the world could fly if it didn't have sight.
Close a door and the light hits your eyes;
it is time that I tried.

Count the pennies that spill from the jar;
not enough to get far.
But there's maybe enough to get what must be done
to erase all the scars.
Drilling holes in the back of my skull
never using a tool.
I won't forget you
I want you to know,
but my arms must let go.

I'm only looking for someplace to hide.
Please do not try to find me.
