Gone By Daybreak

from Hourglass by Dreaded Silence



She assured me it would be quick and painless
But the ticking of time is an echo oh so long
I asked her where we go when we die
She just smiled weakly and kissed my cheek

"To a place where no one knows."

This pulse in my hand
It's a life, it's a death

She pulls me swiftly by my hand
I see the crowded stairs of the church in a blur
Destined to go somewhere beyond this
It's wearing off as we slide through the door

She said "you always left me wanting more."

I am just sand in the glass and I don't fear this departure

Take me into your arms
When I'm dead and gone
Hold me close to your heart
When I'm dead and gone
Plant me deep in the ground
When I'm dead and gone
Dead and gone
