about

Michael: "There was some question as to if there was even any bass on this. I dunno. I think there is. It's totally raw. Very much that thing that Summer loved - one take and out. I didn't try to "fix" anything..."

lyrics

My stupid hands
My foolish mouth
Let the one cover the other
Never let it out
I'll never know
It's so unfair
Dreamt you float alive above me
Catch you in mid-air
If only...
'Cause now you're gone
Now you're gone
And I'm still alive
And anyday is a good day to die
Don't sleep
Can't find my way
There's nothing left of without you
All I need to say to you
But now you're gone
Now you're gone
And I'm still alive
And anyday is a good day to die
I close my eyes to find you
I'm right behind you
'Cause nothing so unkind could be true
Sleep is finally mine
And you...
But daylight shatters
Daylight shatters
Nothing matters
Anyday's a good day to die...
