She Sings Only Sad Songs - feat. Craig Chesler

She’s a frightened statue
A sea wind is all she feels
She acts as though you’re absent
The rain is all she reveals
She’s a soft light
Simple as a dance
She’ll say how far away
Then give you just a glance

She sings only sad songs

She’s a wounded dove
Never the first to cry
She’ll never take to fleeing
Was never good at saying goodbye
She’s among the rocks
Where sky skyscrapers kiss the sun

She sings only sad songs

She’s a cool army of flowers
Beneath the burning sky
Who are you to be silent
When ever she walks by
She’s an old road less traveled
Where all you hear is drums
All I can see is dreams
until the marching season comes
