A penny for my thoughts, oh no I’ll sell them for a dollar They’re worth so much more after I’m a goner And maybe then you’ll hear the words I been singin’ Funny when you’re dead how people start listenin’.
If I die young bury me in satin Lay me down on a bed of roses Sink me in the river at dawn Send me away with the words of a love song
The ballad of a dove Go with peace and love Gather up your tears, keep ‘em in your pocket Save them for a time when your really gonna need ‘em, oh
The sharp knife of a short life, well I’ve had just enough time So put on your best boys And I’ll wear my pearls.
If you could only see the beast you’ve made of me I held it in but now it seems you’ve set it running free The saints can’t help me now, the ropes have been unbound I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground
“This is not what I intended; I always swore to you I’d never fall apart. You always thought that I was stronger… I may have failed, but I have loved you from the start… So, breathe in, so deep. Breathe me in. I’m yours to keep, and hold onto your words, cause talk is cheap. And remember me tonight, when your asleep.” - Secondhand Serenade, “Fall For You” <3
