The Fall


I leapt off a building with you,
And I just shut my eyes,
I listened to your whispers,
And the wind and I sighed.

I leapt off a building with you,
Holding hands on the way down.
You cradled me to the grave,
And we dropped without a sound.

I leapt off a building with you,
And I swore we were flying,
But now we have cracked teeth and bloody faces-
Just lying on the pavement and dying.

But when we fell I held your hand
Tighter than a neck and ropes' embrace
And i thought it'd be better to die with you
Than have never had the taste
Of blood and love and hurt
And that sweet mouthful of dirt.

We died and my heart broke
All together it came to an end,
I leapt off a building with you,
My love, my best friend.
Yet in the end,for all of the pretty parts,
I would keep the crushed chests and the cracked hearts.
