From Her To Eternity Submit Correct Lyrics

I wanna tell ya 'bout a girl
You know, she lives in room 29
Why, why that's the one right up top a mine
I start to cry, I start to cry

Oh I hear her walkin'
Walkin' barefoot cross the boards
All through this lonesome night
I hear her cryin' too
Hot-tears come splashin' on down
Leaking through the cracks

Down upon my face, I catch 'em in my mouth
I catch 'em in my mouth
I catch 'em in my mouth
I catch 'em in my mouth
Walk n' cry, walk n' cry
Walk n' cry, walk n' cry

From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity

I read her diary on her sheets
Scrutinizin' every lil' bit of dirt
Tore out a page n' stufft it inside my shirt
I fled outa the window
And shinning it down the vine
Outa her nightmare, and back into mine
Mine, O mine

From her to eternity
From her to eternity
Cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry

She's wearing them bloo-stockens, I bet!
And standin' like this with my ear to the ceiling
Listen, I know it must sound absurd
but I can hear the most melancholy sound I ever heard
Walk n' cry, walk n' cry
Kneel n' cry, kneel n' cry

From her to eternity
From her to eternity

Oh tell me why? Oh tell me why?
Oh Why? Why? Why?
Oh tell me why and don't tell me a lie!
Why the ceiling still shakes? Shake! Shake! Shake!
And all the fixtures turn to serpents and snakes?

This desire to possess her is a wound
And it's naggin' at me like a shrew
But, I know, that to possess her
Is, therefore, not to desire her

Oh then, that lil' girl would just have to go
Go! Go! From her to eternity
Go from her to eternity
From her to eternity

From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity

From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
Cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry, cry
