Verse 1

I once had a heart that I had to discard,

Now I wander all alone in the graveyard,

Searching for a familiar name in tomb-stones.

Is there a friendly soul, or only rotting bones?

Chorus

And I dance beneath the willow,

I sleep on the wind's soft pillow.

I breathe the scent of the dying,

I drink the tears of those crying.

Nobody really cares about The Dead.

Nobody truly mourns, they're just afraid.

Verse 2

I once had a life that was torn far away.

Now I weep for my love every single day,

Waiting for him to join me in my final rest.

Is that a flutter of hope I feel in my chest?

Chorus

And I dance beneath the willow,

I sleep on the wind's soft pillow.

I breathe the scent of the dying,

I drink the tears of those crying.

Nobody really cares about The Dead.

Nobody truly mourns, they're just afraid.

Bridge

I don't understand why.

Was all the promises a lie?

Does it all end with a goodbye?

Chorus

And I dance beneath the willow,

I sleep on the wind's soft pillow.

I breathe the scent of the dying,

I drink the tears of those crying.

Nobody really cares about The Dead.

Nobody truly mourns, they're just afraid.

Nobody really cares about The Dead.

Nobody truly mourns, they're just afraid.
