the sword and the pen

durupduru durupduru
bir regina spektor şarkısı. sözleri de şöyle;

don't let me out of this kiss.
don't let me say what i say.
the things that scare us today.
what if they happen someday?
don't let me out of your arms for now.
what if the sword kills the pen?
what if the god kills the man?
and if he does it with love,
well then it's death from above.
and death from above is still a death.

i don't want to live without you.
i don't want to live without you.
i don't want to live
i don't want to live
without you.
i don't want to live
i don't want to live
without you.

for those who still can recall
the desperate colors of fall,
the sweet caresses of may,
only in poems remain.
no one recites them these days
for the shame.

so what if nothing is safe?
so what if no one is saved,
no matter how sweet,
no matter how brave,
but if each to his own lonely grave?

i don't want to live without you.
i don't want to live without you.
i don't want to live
i don't want to live
without you.
i don't want to live
i don't want to live
without you.
i don't want to live
i don't want to live
without you.
i don't want to live
i don't want to live
without you.
