You read the book of the dead
Your days are dressed in black
I see your footprints everywhere
Always moving on
'cause they can’t come back

And despair is an old friend of mine
I taught him all about
how to walk the line
He gave me all his masks,
and I gave him away
and if I were you I wouldn’t listen
to what he has to say

Brandi, you played out your game
So many people
never knew your name
Brandi, I still hear your song
You know, nothing you ever did
was ever really wrong

And even if I could paint your face
Without that perpetual frown
You’d still be dressed in jet black lace
Next to Osiris in your wedding gown

And despair is an old friend of mine
I taught him all about
how to walk the line
He gave me all his masks,
and I gave him away
and if I were you I wouldn’t listen
to what he has to say

Brandi, you played out your game
So many people
never knew your name
Brandi, I still hear your song
You know, nothing you ever did
was ever really wrong
