I Would Die For You
by Matt Walters



He buried her heart still
He buried her on her own
By the cool ferns
In the rained on river bed
.. ..
He took her in his arms
He carried her ghost
Through grey stone fields
He could feel her float
.. ..
She said, “I would die for you
“I would die for you”
And it all came true
It all came true
.. ..
A love so dark
Against that moon
With a silken cord
She spoke too soon
.. ..
She said, “I would die for you
I would die for you”
.. ..
When he first laid eyes
It was like a curse
He felt his heart rise
And gravity in reverse
.. ..
Her eyes full of hope
Her voice full of mourning
And her lips as red
As a shepherds warning
.. ..
She said, “I would die for you
“I would die for you”
And it all came true
It all came true
.. ..
He lay her down
In the gentle earth
And kissed her eyes closed
Like it didn’t hurt
.. ..
She said, “I would die for you
“I would die for you”
“I would die for you”
“I would die for you”
.. ..
And it all came true
It all came true
