die in the night

didn't get to say goodbye to you
didn't know i'd die in the night
but my bag was packed and the trumpet was blaring
& the bottle was spinning me the Do's were Daring.

i always thought you were some kind of god send
i know it's true now cuz i got into heaven
it's different than i thought it but things are better than ever
and when i slip your name i get a free clip of angel's rock opera.

never said sorry for all the falling out
the falling through and the falling down
didn't tell you where i hid it
and i wonder if you're still looking
or if you just dismissed it as a tom-foolery fantasy

i always knew that i'd go first
i always finished everything faster than you
i'd be eating desert honey before you took your first bite
and i bit off, too, much more than i could chew.

i'm walking talking thinking faster than you
it makes sense that i'd die first too.

baby call the cantor baby call the police
you found a dead girl between your sheets
she was staring eyes open out of the window
breathing out a gone-sour dream
breathing nothing back in though
breathing out a gone-sour dream
breathing nothing in

baby call the priest
baby call the bureau of investigation
she was just right here
and now she's disappeared from location
just a footprint to reveal the direction of her destination
it goes up on the wall to the ceiling
running to find new feeling
up on the wall to the ceiling
running to find
well if you need new feeling
climb up on the wall to the ceiling
