  1. Early Grave

From the album Empty EP

Lyrics

Well on the mosaic of faces on a train rushing by
I thought I caught a little glimpse of your smile
So I ran beside to look for you, like a river running dry
For an unsuccessful quarter of a mile

Well if loneliness leads me to an early grave
At least I'll leave behind the promises I made
Oh baby catch me in the cradle while I'm yours to save
When I can run, I'll be running to an early grave

Oh standing on this hill I hear church bells chime
This bed of mould on which I'm stepping must be somebody's grave
Makes me shudder when I think I might be wasting time
Between the darkness in the bookends of my days

Well if loneliness leads me to an early grave
At least I'll leave behind the promises I made
Oh baby catch me in the cradle while I'm yours to save
When I can run, I'll be running to an early grave

Sometimes I wake up surrounded by the smell of you
And it's strong enough to lead me forward blindly
I can carry on like kerosene, I'm burning oil
On a fuse lit by your memory behind me

Well if loneliness leads me to an early grave
At least I'll leave behind the promises I made
Oh baby catch me in the cradle while I'm yours to save
When I can run, I'll be running to an early grave
