Darling what’s your name
And can you hear me
Tell me why you’re out so late alone
The diamonds sparkle in your face I hold you
The gravel glistens black and red below

Hallow, you drift into the night
Hallow-girl
When I close my eyes I see you
When I close my eyes you’re here
In the dead of the night I feel you
When I open my eyes you disappear

The metal wraps itself around your bones
And when it penetrates you it feels cold
As you were born you leave this world alone
A stranger on an unfamiliar road

That roaring engine sings you: Hallelujah
The broken headlamp lights your path to God

Hallow, you drift into the light
Hallow go home
But when I close my eyes I see you
When I close my eyes you’re here
In the dead of the night I feel you
When I open my eyes you disappear
