Strange Sun 02:18
Carry me down to the valley she said I can feel the darkness coming overhead even the stones are like feather beds your love doesn't hurt And it's fatal when it's best when her grip had gone from my hand I stood all alone in this desolate land Back in the valley I make out how I can But some things that break You can never mend
