Rattle And Howl

Hardly there at all,
Just a tiny spark.
And I kept your secret so well,
So you could grow in the dark.

But now you are gone
And my bones rattle and howl.
The wind outside rumbles,
The piano just growls.

Just a drifting cloud,
I never knew your name.
And yet my blood did know,
and I loved you all the same.

But now you are gone
And my bones rattle and howl.
The wind outside rumbles,
The piano just growls.
My heart trips and stumbles,
The birds swoop down and shriek.
The flowers all wilt.
The doors creak.

Maybe it’s better not to have loved
Than to lose again and again.
Maybe somewhere among the blood and the tears
I can find the cure for the pain.

But now you are gone
And my bones rattle and howl.
The wind outside rumbles,
The piano just growls.
My heart trips and stumbles,
The birds swoop down and shriek.
The flowers all wilt.
The doors creak.
And the cherry trees tilt,
And the drum beat lags,
And the rivers run dry
And the melodies drag.

Hardly there at all,
And yet I thought you’d grow.
My little spark, I miss you,
I don’t wanna let you go.

But now you are gone
And my bones rattle and howl.
The wind outside rumbles,
The piano just growls.
My heart trips and stumbles,
The birds swoop down and shriek.
The flowers all wilt.
The doors creak.
And the cherry trees tilt,
And the drum beat lags,
And the rivers run dry
And the melodies drag.
The wind outside rumbles,
The piano just growls.
The piano, the piano just growls.
