  • Stacy, I'd like to take you to a movie
    In a world without a death wish
    On a night under the fireworks in heaven
    Oh but Stacy
    Baby, you can take me anywhere
    Because I get a lot of low downs
    So just put me in the cold ground and visit
    Oh, but what if
    What if my soul was still trembling?

    Oh would you put your black dress on and visit my bones?
    And bring my football top and a scarf for the cold
    Playing melancholy songs that somehow made us
    (Feel a whole lot better)
    Well, I waited on the kingdom come and the trumpet blow
    In the cold, hard ground there's some letters you wrote
    Would I get any rest from the wreck that I was with the living?
    Or would you just go on?

    Stacy, I never thought I'd miss the small talk
    I never knew the gift the day was
    I just used to hear the time clock
    Whistle stop
    Sleep and get back up again
    Stacy, I never thought I'd miss the hard love
    I wish I took the time to miss you
    While we were sitting only right there under heaven
    Oh, but what if
    What if my soul was still trembling?

    And would you put your black dress on and visit my bones?
    And bring my football top and a scarf for the cold
    Playing melancholy songs that somehow made us
    (Feel a whole lot better)
    Well, I waited on the kingdom come and the trumpet blow
    In the cold, hard ground there's some letters you wrote
    Would I get any rest from the wreck that I was with the living?
    Or would you just go on?

    Could you promise me something if you find someone?
    That you'll forget me not
    Never feel too much
    Even if they do all the things that I couldn't do for you
    And I'll promise you something if I find someone
    That I'll forget you not
    Never feel too much
    Even if they do all the things that I couldn't do for you
    Oh, but what if
    What if your soul was still trembling?

    And I would put my black suit on and visit your bones
    And bring a football top and a play that you wrote
    And an English song by a band that you love
    Here comes the sun, little darling
    And the kingdom come and the trumpet blow
    In the cold, hard ground there's some letters you wrote
    Would you get any rest from the wreck that I was with the living?
    Or would you just go on?

    Would you put your black dress on and visit my bones?
    And bring my football top and a scarf for the cold (please forget me not)
    Playing melancholy songs that somehow made us
    Feel a whole lot better (would you just go on?)
    Well, I waited on the kingdom come and the trumpet blow
    In the cold, hard ground there's some letters you wrote (oh please forget me not)
    Would I get any rest from the wreck that I was with the living? Writer/s: Brian Fallon
