  • Really can't remember where I left my spine
    Carrying my body in a bag for dimes
    Hidden in the pages of the New York Times at home

    And maybe I'll be better if I take my meds
    Ain't a double header if you lose your head
    Tried a medication that I bought instead
    It's working for a little but there's not much left

    Darling don't you weep
    There's a place for me
    Somewhere we can sleep
    I'll see you in your dreams

    Ever since a little girl, I found it sweet
    Driving past a graveyard on a lonesome street
    All the little flowers gave me something to believe in

    Never knew the feeling of a stable home
    Been a couple years of living on the road
    Couldn't really tell you where they'd leave a stone
    To visit me when I am dead and gone

    Darling don't you weep
    There's a place for me
    Somewhere we can sleep
    I'll see you in your dreams

    Darling don't you cry
    Head fast toward the light
    Foolish men have tried
    But only you have shown me how to love being alive

    Until it's time to see the light
    I'll make my own with you each night
    I'll kidnap all the stars and I will keep them in your eyes
    I'll wrap them up in velvet twine
    And hang them from a fishing line
    So I can see them any time I'd like

    Darling don't you weep
    There's a place for me
    Somewhere we can sleep
    I'll see you in your dreams

    Darling don't you cry
    Head fast toward the light
    Foolish men have tried
    But only you have shown me how to love being alive Writer/s: Ashley Frangipane, Atticus Ross, Johnathan Cunningham, Trent Reznor
