The Mortician's Daughter
by Black Veil Brides



I open my lungs dear
I sing this song at funerals, no rush
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush
A baby boy you've held so tightly
This pain it visits almost nightly
Missing hotel beds I feel your touch

I will wait dear
A patient of eternity, my crush
A universal still, no rust
No dust will ever grow on this frame
One million years I will say your name
I love you more than I can ever scream

We booked our flight those years ago
I said I love you as I left you
Regrets still haunt my hollow head
But I promised you that I will see you again
Again

I sit here and smile dear
I smile because I think if you and I blush
These bleeding hollow dials, this fuss
A fuss is made of miles and travel
The roadways are but stones and gravel
A bleeding heart can conquer every crutch

We booked our flight those years ago
You said you loved me as you left me
Regrets still haunt your saddened head
But I promised you that I will see you...

We booked our flight those years ago
I said I love you as I left you
Regrets no longer in my head
I promised you and now I'm home again, again, again
I'm home again, again, again
I'm home again
