Eureka Birds – Oh! My Dear lyrics

There's an unexplained creaking underneath my floorboards
And if you listen close you can hear the most haunting sound

Listless days trickle away in school
Across the room without a clue I see you
To her I never seemed much
To me she was a dream what horrible luck had I
Our eyes would never meet
Her cries were of defeat
They crept up my spine

Oh my dear I sent her off!
Oh my dear she's down down

In later years I built my home here
To rest beside familiar ground away
But oh! The crackles and the moans
Up and down my bones
I can't undo them
And now I'm losing sleep
The creaking underneath it makes me shiver

Oh my dear I cut her up!
Oh my dear she's down down
