A swan song (Chords: Cm, A, B, E, F#)

Verse 1

 every night I run away with her 

Neath the skies of white asylums

mirages of paradise islands 

a loft our urban lawn

lost hearts and eyes forlorn 

Pre chorus

Yet we're kissing  in death's debris

under the city's greatgrey trees

young, lonely, yet free

beautiful and ashamed,

we're always against the grain



But we're singing in the sorrow

dancing in the hollow

oh ow oh 

a pair of  splendid swallows 

leave us to wallow

dancing in the hollow


Verse 2


now she run's away from me

I should let her be?

why  won't  she just set me free?

thought she was my cure,

such aloof alure

left me begging for more

how will i endure?

now I'm through the city's cellar door 

alone and chewing off my jaw 


Pre chorus 2


 lying in my own debris

my very own grey tree 

young lonely yet free 

Who's to say I'm still me?

clinging to my brain 

cast out against the grain 



oh i'm sobbing in my sorrow 

dancing in the hollow 

oh ow oh 

a death diving swallow 

how long can i wallow 

still dancing in the hollow 

oh  oh


dancing in the hollow, oh ow oh, 

dancing in the the hollow, woah ah oh.
