her eyes lay pretty dark in their sockets
they used to shine so bright
when morning comes the sun won't awake her
i shut the lid so tight

she asked me
come play in the attic
and i couldn't help
when she held on with all of her might
wasn't that what you asked for

down, down the stairs
keep it quiet
i won't tell our mom
down the stairs

her lashes give in to my fingers
i knew they'd suit me right
it won't be long before they will miss her
but i'll console them tight

she knew i don't like to go up there
and i couldn't help her
even if i would have tried
wasn't that what you asked for

down, down the stairs
keep it quiet be silent
i'll hide you
you won't feel alone
i'll take you home with the others
smothered like sisterly love does
