'Let Me Go Down Easy', featuring elements of 'Burning the Meadow' by Rick Lyon.

 

Until it fades like a memory

 

There's a fire in the memory

of the fire end of the night.

Flames across the meadow,

like a face you can't reprise.

When Vanity at last deserts you,

Find at last that nothing hurts you

but I can see it written in your eyes

 

let me go down easy

let me go down

let me go down free

 

Maybe something's wrong with us,

some immortal kink,

that surges, cleansing, leaving nothing

Of the life that's been.

But I still feel you walk beside me

skipping over oceans boundary

Tiny hand, the firm rough hand within

 

let me go down easy

let me go down

let me go down free
