Beneath The Veil - Chester French

Well I've been fooled
And I've fooled around
No sense to lie
About where I'm bound

But once it's light
And we're home
Won't be no time to burn

Burn through the night
And throw me away
Ten shovels deep
On mother's day

But once it's light
And we're home
Won't be no time to burn

And the names
In the fridge
Gonna have to wait their turn

See I'm dressed and I'm done
Yeah I'm comin for the sun
And I've got to get some rest

And oh, won't you cover my face
I'm lookin pale and it is time to go home
Beneath the veil mother feels so alone
Beneath the veil she's so alone

You know I'm scared
Scared straight to hell
Just hear my voice
And know I'm not well

But once it's light
And we're home
Won't be no time to burn

And the names
In the fridge
Gonna have to wait their turn

See I'm dressed and I'm done
Yeah I'm comin for the sun
And I've got to get some

[Chorus]

And oh, won't you make me up nice
While I'm around, before I get out of town
Beneath the ground there is barely a sound
Beneath the ground there's not a sound
