The Mighty Echo

Now you’re done, 

now you’re done with the wakng world

Slowly it rises and echoes from your chest

And the sound, and the sound of your breaking heart

Well, it shakes, through the night, through the night

 

And take your time, pretty baby

Brace yourself

‘Cause the weight of the world 

Is a much heavier thing, love, than you thought

 

Oh, the sun, oh, the sun rises with her heart

With a kiss, with a twitch, you were pulled into the dawn

Here and now, here and now is an evil love

‘Cause she’s gone, 

‘cause she’s gone and you have lost her forever, dear

 

Take your time, pretty baby 

And brace yourself

‘Cause the weight of the world 

Is a much heavier thing, love, than you thought

And take your time, pretty baby, brace yourself

‘Cause the weight of the world 

Is a much heavier thing love than you thought

Here, crossing such bounds, dear

The lights rearranged on the vacant, sprawling ground

Now, she’s lost forever!

Steer here, into the sparks

Into the soft and mighty echo, love

 

And the wind, it goes from your lungs

And the sound you know, oh, the sound, you feel it come

Like a beast, 

like a beast that’s coming up out of your chest again

Take your time, pretty baby 

And brace yourself

‘Cause the weight of the world 

Is a much heavier thing, love, than you thought

And take your time, pretty baby

Brace yourself,

‘Cause the weight of the world 

Is a much heavier thing love than you thought

Dear, fly over countries here

The lights rearranged, and you’ll never find her 

In this mighty echo!

Throw fear, sadness and love, dear

Into a void that could swallow up the sun

The dark the silence!

Lift, speed, out over cities

The lights rearranged, such a bitter beauty 

Oh, this mighty echo!

Fall spear, into the dark, into the soft and mighty echo

 

And now you’re done

Now you’re done 

Now you’re done, now
