My soul burns within you
Sweet smells linger in your hair
Grey suns hide inside you
I don’t dare follow you there

In the night I call you
Candles are living light
Come to me won’t you
Secrets are safe in your smile

Girl, I’d like to paint your picture
It won’t keep ’til next season
Girl, these poppies are contagious
I think I’ll call you Death the Bride

Of course we’ll dress you all in black
A girlish hat for you
Smile that smile for me and wave
As you pass from this side

Girl, I’d like to paint your picture
(In this light)
It won’t keep ’til next season
(I can see it in your eyes - Death comes with the sunrise)
Girl, these poppies are contagious
(And to think)
That I would marry Death the Bride
I know you’d make a pretty picture
