You Jumped in Front of the Train

You jumped in front of the train;vote
Took a bullet in the brain.
You broke your back,
And left your love in a haversack

You laid your body on the pyre;
Consumed by raging fire.
You took the blame,
And saved me from the flame.

You sheltered me from the storm;
Kept me dry and warm.
You said farewell,
As you hammered in the final nail.

In your eyes the dancing light,
In your breathe the soul takes flight.
In your tears the song sung sweet,
In your heart the heavens beat.

You laid your body on the pyre;
Consumed by raging fire.
You said farewell,
As you hammered in the final nail.

… … … the dancing light and light
… … … and this soul takes flight
… … … songs and songs so sweet
In your heart the very heavens beat.
