Wrestles With Death

lyrics

I asked the stars
to pull away time.
I asked the stars.
They said no, no, no They said no,no,no

I’ve got a friend who wrestles with death.
She pulled me out when I was a mess.
told me that the moves aren’t already set.
So I wrote my way away the edge.

I asked the sky
to blow out my light.
I asked the sky.
It said no, no, no It said no,no,no

I’ve got a friend who sleeps with mercy.
I don’t know why she would have picked me.
She taught me how to stay still
so that our minds don’t go for the kill.

I asked the sea
To swallow me.
I asked the sky.
It said no, no, no It said no,no,no

I’ve got a friend who wrestles with death.
She pulled me out when I was a mess.
told me that the moves aren’t already set.
So I wrote my way away the edge.

I’ve got a friend who sleeps with mercy.
I don’t know why she would have picked me.
She taught me how to stay still
so that our minds don’t go for the kill.
