December (The Cobblestones)

from by Sam Plotkin

lyrics

Grasping my gun
As the world turns the other way
My Julia
On the shoreline of another place
Those endless nights
You're wasting till break of day
I'll gather my heart
Only for you I go to war

I cannot change what they've done
It seems insane, but you can't wake up

“My body lies along the cobblestones
Please help me find the ones who bring the cold”

These four long years
I've tracked your captors to Washington
I see my hands
Wrapped around their necks as they bite the sand

I cannot change what they've done
It seems insane, but you can't wake up

“My body lies along the cobblestones
Please don't come north along the open road”

I can almost feel the way that you grasp my heart
So, the reaper comes to lay the veil upon your eyes.
