~I may tell a little lie to the night~I may~

~cry a cup of tears~

~yes I might~

~I may be sad but don’t you worry~

~there are times we have had~

~they’re the best I ever knew~

~& I may yet tip a cup with you~

 

~Into Black~

 

~was a time when words did carry~

~notions of love from yours to mine~

~it even saw the lovers marry~

~mine to yours & yours to mine~

~& many a soft glass of wine~

~was spilled and drank inside the walls~

~joyous parties & happy times~

~they touched us, touched us, one & all~

~I heard you hearing, going back~

~I saw you seeing into black~

~into black~

 

~in quiet repose the mistress fell~

~& yet she did not fall alone~

~the earth shook as she went to hell~

~still I can t find her in my home~

~oh oh, she surely used to come to see~

~& happily drink this tainted wine~

~she knew someday that she would be~

~mine to yours & yours to mine~

~I felt her as she felt the rack~

~she kissed me~

~then turned into black~

~into black~

 

~I remember how the dying went~

~the howling wind whispering please~

~our life’s blood was spilled & spent~

~the times had brought us to our knees~

~when cousins married cousins there~

~from out the bottom of the line~

~I heard the begging in your stare~

~mine to yours & yours to mine~

~I said we burned the bodies & we hid the facts~

~you know we turned them into black – Into black~

 

~tomorrow’s sun still shines today~

~yesterday’s sun is in your eyes~

~all death’s children have come to play~

~& steal that garden in the sky~

~see they’re empty behind the masques~

~shivering coldness in their breath~

~they answer what we’d never ask~

~& laugh themselves from life to death~

~are the soldiers coming back~

~see them, free them, into black~

~Into black~

~see them begging into black~

~into black~

~see them~

~free them~

~into black~
