Slint – Washer

Goodnight my love. Remember me as you fall to sleep. Fill your pockets with the dust and the memories rises from the shoes on my feet

I won’t be back here. Though we may meet again

I know it’s dark outside. Don’t be afraid. Every time I ever cried for fear it was just a mistake that I made. Wash yourself in your tears and build your church on the strength of your faith

Please listen to me. Don’t let go. Don’t let this desperate moonlight leave me with your empty pillow. Promise me the sun will rise again

I too am tired now. Embracing thoughts of tonight’s dreamless sleep. My head is empty, my toes are warm, I am safe from harm
