lyrics

Well, it’s rain for the last time he sees you
for the last time he sees you
for the last

And don’t you forfeit a single one
not a moment, not a scar
not a bicycle handle bar

Took a train for the choo choo to breathe through
for the truth you ascribe to
to the last

And don’t you forfeit a single one
not the flat-head nickel
or the tremor as it goes and comes

Do you remember how you balanced
like the angels playing horse-hair violins?
Do you remember how you drew her like electric
round her finger glistening?

And he drank to the waltz for the widow
round the church out the window widdershins

And don’t you forfeit a single one
not the shadow of a shudder or the sound of a smoking gun

Yeah, don’t you forfeit a single one
not a moment, not a scar, not a constellation
