Elvis Perkins Good Friday

come lay here beside me and i’ll fear no death
i’ll give you my body then i’ll breathe your breath
no one will harm you inside this song
we will be safe here as the night is long
that makes way for Good Friday

get out of your body for there goes your blood
it falls on the sea grass and colors the flood
the time of our fathers’ is not ours to kill
this sad cellar wine aren’t ours to spill
and won’t be passed over Good Friday

though this life is Ash Wednesday
it’s Ash Wednesday before ever on approaches
Good Friday
