All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear…

Daylight Fading, Couting Crows

 

Waiting for the moon to come and light me up inside
And I am waiting for the telephone to tell me I’m alive
Well I heard you let somebody get their fingers into you
It’s getting cold in California
I guess I’ll be leaving soon

Daylight fading
Come and waste another year
All the the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping around the corners of our lawn
When we see the early signs that daylight’s fading
We leave just before it’s gone

She said “everybody loves you,”
she says, “everybody cares”
But all the things I keep inside myself
they vanish in the air
If you tell me that you’ll wait for me
I’ll say I won’t be here
I want to say good-bye to you
Good-bye to all my friends
Good-bye to everyone I know

Daylight fading
Come and waste another year
All the the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping around the corners of our lawn
When we see the early signs that daylight’s fading
We leave just before it’s gone

 

Demo Version:
Sunday morning paper dated 1992
There are cowboys in my kitchen
empty bottles on the roof
I've been trying to quit these cigarettes
I've been trying to think its true
Maybe she's gone to California
maybe Ill go out there too
Daylight fading come and waste another year
all the anger and the elegance are bleeding into fear
moonlight creeping round the corners of our lawn
when she sees the early signs of daylight fading
she leaves just before its gone
Daddy's on the rooftop with his fingers in
the gun and I am waiting at the window I am
waiting for the one
Shying in that paper when she walked into my room I said I want to
say good-bye to you good-bye to all my friends good-bye to everyone I know
Daylight fading come and waste another year
all the anger and the elegance are bleeding into fear
moonlight creeping round the corners of our lawn
when she sees the early signs of daylight fading
she leaves just before its gone
