Secret of Life

Lord Huron  Buy  License   

I sit alone in the dark, and I try to remember
The words you spoke when you summoned the Ender
You chained my life to an ancient master
Will the curse be reversed if I say it backwards?

What you crossed was a line at the edge of the void
And you can’t cross back without making a choice
But then something escaped when you opened the gate
You cheated death and sealed your fate

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

One, two, three, four

Put on your new dress tonight
And look to the west, the moon’s in the sky
I wanna get at least that high
I wanna leave the Earth and my things behind
You told me you’re never gonna die
How am I supposed to sleep through the night?
You showed me the secret of life
I can’t forget that look in your eye

Been a long time gone, living out on the coast
It’s a long way back from the edge of the cosmos
Truths once known never come unknown
I learned that lesson lives ago

To die for good, it must be earned
The ways of death can never be learned
And the life I’ve lived is only dust
The darkness comes for all of us

Put on your new dress tonight
And I look to the west, the moon’s in the sky
I wanna get at least that high
Wanna leave the Earth and all things behind

You told me you’re never gonna die
How am I supposed to sleep through the night?
You showed me the secret of life
I can’t forget that look in your eye

La, da, da
La, da ,da
