The Decemberists – 12-17-12 lyrics

[Verse:]
What a gift, what a gift you can give me
Here with my heart so whole, while others may be breathing
Think of the grieving, and oh my boy, don't you know that you killed me
You are a breath of life and a light upon the water
A light upon the water...

[Verse 2:]
And oh, my love, if you only knew how I long for you
How I waste my days wishin' you would come along
Just to have you around
What a dear, what a sweet little baby
This cannonball in the bosom of your belly
It's just a kick in your body

[Verse 3:]
And oh my God, what a world you would make here
What a terrible world, what a beautiful word
What a world you would make here
What a world you would make here
What a world you would make here
