Letra From Her To Eternity

Ah wanna tell ya 'bout a girl
you know, she lives in room 29
why... why... that's the one right up top a mine
ah start to cry, ah start to cry

o ah hear her walkin'
walkin' barefoot cross the floor-boards
all thru this lonesome night
ah hear her crying too.
hot-tears come splashin on down
leaking thru the cracks,
down upon my face, ah catch'em in my mouth!
ah catch'em in my mouth!
ah catch'em in my mouth!
walk'n'cry walk'n'cry-y!!!

from her to eternity!
from her to eternity!
from her to eternity!

ah read her diary on her sheets
scrutinizin' every lil bit of dirt
tore out a page'n'stufft it inside my shirt
fled outa the window,
and shinning it down the vine
outa her night-mare, and back into mine
mine! o mine!

from her to eternity!
from her to eternity!
from her to eternity!
cry! cry! cry!

she's wearing them bloo-stockens, ah bet!
and standin' like this with my ear to the ceiling
listen, ah know it must sound absurd
but ah can hear the most melancholy sound
ah ever heard!
walk'n'cry! kneel'n'cry-y!

from her to eternity!
from her to eternity!

o tell me why? o tell me why?
oh why? why? why?
o tell me why and don't tell me a lie!
why the ceiling still shakes? shakes! shakes! shakes!
why the fixtures turn to serpents and snakes?

this desire to possess her is a wound
and its naggin at me like a shrew
but, ah know, that to possess her
is, therefore, not to desire her.

o o o then ya know, that lil girl would just have to go!
go! go-o-o! from her to eternity!

from her to eternity! [repeat]
