stay dead

from #14 by the garages



we lost you in flame
all those years ago
you were gone too soon
we let you go

they quenched your hot coals
love, you deserved your rest
I thought I’d moved on
I tried my best...

phoenix, it’s over now
just rest your head
phoenix, your fire’s out
it’s time to stay dead

no just recompense
I’d made my peace with that
and when he was slain
I raised my glass

the embers inert
ashes gone cold and black
so why’s it still hurt?
the flame’s come roaring back

phoenix it’s over now
just rest your head
Cash, your fire is out
it’s time to stay dead!

you left us for good
we lost you to flames
please don’t come back now
ash is all that remains


phoenix it’s over now
just rest your head
Tiana, your flame’s gone out
it’s time to stay dead.
