In A Graveyard – Rufus Wainwright

This is a short and sweet song.

Here are all the lyrics because they are so beautiful, like a well composed poem:
Wandering properties of death
Arresting moons within our eyes and smiles
We did rest
Amongst the granite tombs to catch our breath

Worldly sounds of endless warring
Were for just a moment silent stars
Worldly boundaries of dying
Were for just a moment never ours
All was new
Just as the black horizons blue

Then along the bending path away
I smiled in knowing I’d be back one day

I love the simple composure of the song which works with the emotion of the song which is so tender and thoughtful. And Wainwright’s voice is also so beautiful he makes words like “the bending path” sound so thick with meaning.
