Dressed In Black (Lyrics)

This ditty was done in a 2001 Soundcheck. Its catchy melody lead it to be named as a song by fans listening in on the soundcheck.

oh that you say that you are
oh they stave the light
only for you i did
taking time alright
only what you wrote
wrote into your living room
open fire again
taking minutes not hours
this soul to defend it

oh they died of it
on causes known
what you are doing is
everyone he knew dressed in black
radiant girl a tear
staring out at the moon
noticing me staring
she wiped the water from her mouth
words say

dying doesn't seem too bad
being left behind seems the troubled path
only this after our world
keep me cold and wide-eyed at night
oh and every way
waking up on this side
cold sweats and worries
keep me well alive
