Time Falls, Run ’85

Autumn ’85
      Time Falls, Run '85

Refrain:
Time Falls, Run little darling.
Time Falls, Run precious one.
Time Falls, Run little sister.
Time Falls, Run.

Time Falls, Run little darling.
The sun rises not forever more.
Time Falls, carry just your little prayer.
Time Falls, Run the killing floor.

Time Falls, Run little darling
lest the promised lands burn behind closed doors.
Time Falls, Godspeed precious one.
Time Falls, Run the killing floor.

Refrain

Time Falls, Run haunted and twilit.
Little days that spill like pennies on the floor.
Time Falls, Run in Father’s grace.
Time Falls, Run the killing floor.

And your time little darling
burns like the setting sun.
And your heart little darling,
beating, beating, another day done.
And your soul little darling
like the tears with the ocean join as one.
And your time, and your time,
time, time, Time Falls, Run.

Time Falls, Run baby girl.
The swelling tide has come to drown us on the shore.
Time Falls, rise from your slumber.
Time Falls, Run the killing floor.
Time Falls, Run little darling.
Time Falls, Run precious one.
Time Falls, Run little sister.
Time Falls, Run.

Time…
