Sunfall

So what if I’m depressed?

Well you are too

So let’s go watch the sun fall from the sky

Sit down, wouldn’t bother wonderin' why

Tilt up those lips for just a moment

Pretend it’s okay for the dancers

Hold- don’t let them see it true

Just me and you

We’ll hide it in the moonlight

Wait 'til they’ve gone and said goodnight

Hush now; your insides are black and blue

Burnt by a flame we all once knew

Come on then, pass it around

Hush now; don’t make a sound

Now they’re up and awake

Put it out, for your own sake

Feel it around your throat?

Good; we all do now

Familiar like a sunfall…
