Lyrics

V1

Her radiance she made for the king

Of chipped and broken shells and colors soaked in rose and gasoline.

For all I might suppose I’d seen,

 

It was not enough to write it on the wall and be remembered.

By the light of the fire she surrendered and I don’t mind at all.

 

V2

And upon her silver shoes,

Were the scratches worn from trouble borne and years of being used.

And for all that I might suppose I’d lose,

 

It was not enough to write it on the wall and be remembered.

By the light of the fire she surrendered and I don’t mind at all.

 

V3

Her gradients ran gray to green.

Where what mattered more would not adore her cynical esteem.

And for all they might suppose they’d seen.

 

It was not enough to write it on the wall and be remembered.

By the light of the fire she surrendered and I don’t mind at all.
