Call before you're here, I'll leave the door unlocked.
Quietly my dear: be careful where you walk.
The yard is full of leaves, littered by the fall,
we'll return them to the trees when we grow that tall.

Call before you're here - I'll leave on the light.
Quietly my dear: you will be alright.
Follow my voice in case you lose your sight,
I'm singing in my bed to make it through the night.

Call before you're here - there's no need to feel so sad.
I could never be angry at you & I could never be mad!
Take the stairs by tiptoe with your hand along the wall,
the floor so soft below - you fall asleep where you fall.

We'll bury you in blankets with a kiss upon your grave,
then you close your eyes and step into the cave.
We consider it a miracle that you didn't disappear -
it's tempting to stay forever
in your limitless interior.

Call before you're here,
quietly my dear.
We think of what we love
but we dream of what we fear.
We wake up with a smile
We wake up with a tear
We wake up in a pile
of what we plan to wear.
