Monday Afternoon - Marika Hackman

[Verse 1]
I have no head
The forest floor is my bed
The leaves that fall I use as a blanket
For my bones are as cold as lead
The weight of all those hungry mouths
The things they said

[Verse 2]
I have no eyes
The forest floor I despise
But I will not be gone in the morning
I will lie, still here, I will lie

[Chorus]
You said to meet at the edge of the trees
On a Monday afternoon
I waited until the moon

[Bridge]
Lay on your back, breathe it in
The sickly sweet of my rotting skin
And you followed the road
And it was just our dust, just our dust

[Verse 3]
The trace of your steps
Leads right to where I took my breath
For the last time, it lingers forever
As a ghost of where we last met
The stars were not so brave to show
What they don't know

[Bridge](x2)

[Bridge 2]
Standing there in the frosty air
I knew our time had come
And you followed the road
And it was just our dust

[Verse 4]
I feel no pain
The blood is frozen in my veins
And although you were here in the morning
My skin was cold before you came
