For the departed - lyrics

Show song Facebook

Just a moment dear
I hear someone at the door
And the beating of a heart
That I hid beneath the floor
They've come for me love
Save yourself
I am far beyond repair
They will bury me alive
But I'm not inclined to care
I am too far gone now
So dry your eyes and count to ten
They'll have me on the pyre by then
Forget the man I used to be
You'll move a long more easily
A moment dear
I hear someone in the hall
And the plundering of promises
We hung up on the wall
They've come for us love
Save yourself
I am bitter to the bone
And I'm growing rather fond
Of the wandering alone
I am too far gone now
So dry your eyes and count to ten
They'll have me on the pyre by then
Forget the man I used to be
You'll move a long more easily
Now I must finish what I started
I'll write a symphony for the departed
I have no time for second chances
So I survive on bourbon, blood, and backward glances
The scene begins
Your cries become the wind
A desperate plea best left unheard
Then my contrived goodbye
A poet's pantomime
A drunken jester's final words
Just a moment dear
I hear someone at the door
And the beating of a heart
That I hid beneath
They've come for me love
Now I must finish what I started
I'll write a symphony for the departed
I have no time for second chances
So I survive on bourbon, blood, and backward glances
Dry your eyes and count to ten
They’ll have me on the pyre by then
