Before they nail down the coffin lid you've got a song to sing


I’m a little big - bigger than I was
You don’t have to stare
But you can applaud my radiance

I’m a burning star poking in your eye
You can turn away
Have a little cry ‘cause of my radiance

I’m a tiny flower pressed between the sheets
Now the library’s on fire
I shall be released in my radiance

Wake up in a daze - memory’s going dark
Eyes are getting dim
Still there is a spark of my radiance

Limbs that cannot speak - words won't find themselves
Songs I’ve learnt to sing
At the bottom of a well in my radiance

The cigarettes I’ve smoked - the ghosts that I’ve exhaled
Steadily on course
The comets tail of my radiance

There is no way I’m going before you’ve heard me sing
Cancel the priest and take the lid right off this thing

Radiance, radiance, radiance

You’ve seen me fall apart and nearly die in shame
Naked and sober I’m prepared to wear the blame
Now there’s nowhere to hide I’m lighting up my name

… in radiance, radiance, radiance

I’m flaming out, I’m flaming out
I’m flaming out, I’m flaming out
I’m flaming out - don’t put me out
