I’ll count up your pennies and take you down the trail
I won’t let anyone get in our way
I won’t fail
To find you a nice spot beneath a willow tree
I’ve got time
The night’s not loosened its hold on me

Your skin is so cold
And your face is pretty in pale
And I keep finding pieces of you
Beneath my fingernails.

You’re not much for conversation on our strange procession
I won’t tuck you in too deep this time
I’ve learned my lesson
I don’t want to leave you here
alone but I’ve got no choice
I’ll sing you a lullaby but
I know you can‘t hear my voice

Your skin is so cold
And your face is pretty in pale
And I’m still finding pieces of you
Beneath my fingernails

You’re not the first you won't be the last
As long as I draw breath
I’m gonna punish you all for crimes
That haven’t been invented yet

Oh no, I think it’s time to go
The sun’s coming up and I need to wash the dirt from my clothes
Oh yes, I think it’s time I leave
But I won’t forget what we did here too soon
You’d better believe
You’d better believe

(Where are you going?
Why am I left among the leaves?
The river is flowing,
But I remain beneath the trees)
