Lyrics

Oh, young love of mine
She sleeps beneath the brine
And oh the sound, the tick
The weighty click of her heart against my spine

Now the dark is nigh
And she lays here at my side
But like a steady squall
Her arms they fall and her legs, they grasp me tight

Oh, young love, young dear
Why have you taken me in your fall?
All of my love, all of my life
Given to you, sacrificed

Oh, my waking world
I leave you for a girl
Cast away into this blight
Swimming blindly through the night

Now my heart is bound
Like a plague upon this sound
And oh, it slips away, such soft decay
Then it grows

Oh, young love, young dear
Why have you taken me from the fall?
All of my love, and all of my life
Given to you, sacrificed

Stay clear of the wreckage
She goes down, down, down

And she burns like the sun
And it all falls away
Take your time and I'll take mine here today
But it cuts like a knife
And we're bound here as the night, it breaks away
And it all goes down

Oh, the sun!

Oh, young love, young dear
Why have you shaken me from the fall?
All of my life, all of my days
Given to you, cast away

Here's to the war
Here's to the night
All of my love, sacrificed

Soft and kind
Cold as ice
Hold yourself beneath the brine

Smooth as wine
Black as night
Hold yourself beneath the brine
