  • Two coffins for sleep,
    One for you, one for me
    We'll get there eventually
    In the dark of our graves our bodies will decay
    I wish you'd never change

    How lucky, I ever was to see,
    The way that you smile at me,
    Your little moon face shining bright at me
    One day soon there'll be nothing left of you and me

    Two coffins for sleep
    Two coffins for sleep

    All the things that I have yet to lose
    Will some day be gone soon,
    Back into annihilation
    All things will fade,
    Maybe it's better off that way
    I wish you'd stay with me

    How lucky I ever was to see,
    The way that you smile at me,
    Your little moon face shining bright at me
    One day soon there'll be nothing left of you and me

    Two coffins for sleep
    Two coffins for sleep

    How lucky I ever was to see,
    The way that you smile at me,
    Your little moon face shining bright at me
    One day soon there'll be nothing left of you and me
