Burdens

Tenderly, Tenderly, Please take my breath from me
Into the fountains and up from the grave
Tearfully, Joyfully, Burn what is left of me
I don't want these burdens that handsomely weigh

You be my guest
And I'll let you stay
Leave me the check
I'll pay with the rest of my life
Twist the knife

Carefully, Quietly, You took what's young from me
I didn't deserve it I gave it away
Cowardly, Thoughtlessly you walk away from me
And I'll tear my heart out to save you the day

You be my guest
And I'll let you stay
Leave me the check
I'll pay with the rest of my life
Twist the knife

Tenderly, Tenderly, Please take my breath from me
Into the fountains and up from the graves.

("Twist the Knife", Neko Case)
