Pity and Fear (Album Version)

Pity and Fear (Album Version)

Death Cab for Cutie

I have such a envy for this stranger lying next to me
Who awakes in the night and slips out into the pre-dawn light
With no words, a clean escape, no promises or messes made
And chops it all up to mistake, mistake, mistake

[Chorus]
And there are no tears
Just pity and fear
In a vast ravine
Right in between

A storm at sea the bow cracked and I was capsizing
And I sunk below where I swore I would never go
If you can't stand in place you can't tell who's walking away
From who remains, who stays, who stays, who stays

[Chorus]

Spare no tears
Just pity and fear
And I recall
The push more than the fall
The push more than the fall.
