lyrics

I wait under the blood moon
as red sky blackens to night
the moon is strung into blackness
by bodies of stars burning bright

they're falling fast through layers of night
the hours pass by and I'm left alone
to think about where I am from
and how I'll get home

I stood over the grass
that was lit by the night sky
I placed my feet over the blades—
they were dry and decayed
but they held me upright

and don't believe what they say
they will not come for you,
they will not come

don't believe what they say
they will not come for you,
they will not come
they will not come

In the mornings I lie here,
all of my eyes staring at nothing
In the mornings I lie here,
all of my eyes staring at nothing
your cold back against me,
your cold eyes moving away from my face

Remember the music you played for me
that one night on your knees?
Half remembered guitar melody
that you wrote when you were in love
with somebody else

and don't believe what they say
they will not come for you,
they will not come

don't believe what they say
they will not come for you,
they will not come
they will not come

You're sorry but you have to leave
you're sorry but you have to leave
you're sorry but you have to leave
so leave, leave, leave, leave, leave

and don't believe what I say
I will not come for you,
I will not come

don't believe what I say
I will not come for you,
I will not come
I will not come
I will not come
I will not come
