Redwings - Guillemots

This is where we fall from the trees
This is where the sky covers up
Daft killers of joy, you made a man out of me

And this is where the glass leaves the lens
Splintering a chemistry of friends
I'll treasure you always

You know I love you

And this is where we wake in the ditch
This is where our bodies sing no more
Fallen apples on the floor, pecked at by redwings

So pour another whisky out for me
It'll be the last bottle we share
As I drift into nowhere

Know that I loved you

But love was not enough to hold my grip
Can't you just feel my fingers slip
Into those oceans in the sky where people swim
Oceans in the sky calling me in
Oceans in the sky I tell myself
Though I'm not kidding anybody else
They know I'm leaving
They know that I'm leaving this behind

So I'm leaving my best friend
Just for the hell of it
Just for the sake of it
But how much I loved you
