Artist: Michelle Shocked
Song Title: Fever Breaks
Try and forget it and yet it keeps you awake
Live to regret it when the fever breaks
Lighting up a cigarette even the slow hand shakes
But it's a cold sweat when the fever breaks

If there is no light, if there's no end in sight
Well then this just might not be a tunnel
If it were up to me, I would not make that mistake
But histories repeat and then the fever breaks

I know what it's like to feel fear
There has been so much confusion
The point is never clear, but I will make it without illusion
Call it an intrusion, if you will, if that's what it takes
But it's the Sound of Mind as the fever breaks

It's all parlor talk at the dead man's wake
Bring out the winding sheets as the fever breaks

A slow and painful death ends faster than the eye can see
Taking your last breath feels like Eternity
Catching a cool breeze across a late summer lake
Feel the chill of autumn as the fever breaks
