First to all, thanks for your kind help.
Here is a vocabulary-compression question. The text belongs of a famous Tom Waits' song:
The leaves will bury every year
And no one knows I'm gone
Live me golden tell me dark
Hide from Graveyard John
Could anyone explain me what means "live me golden tell me dark"?, what is the meaning of that sentence? I am very curious about!
I suspect the transcription is wrong. Perhaps the "live" should be "leave" - with the idea of a fallen leaf still being an attractive thing, but not when it rots and 'returns to the earth' (which is what bodies do in graveyards). But I've no idea what 'tell me dark' could mean
