Requiem

Album: Since I Saw You Last (2013)
  • Hatches matches then dispatches
    All in the embers of my ashes
    Thy will was done
    Oh wipe that worry from your face
    You'll die when you see my new place but
    Do the time
    You're in for life

    Oh my friends I hear you sing
    The Lord's my shepherd, really what a song to sing
    Why bring me flowers
    When you know that I can't smell a thing
    For the folks I leave behind
    I'm in Heaven, well, imagine my surprise
    I'm really flattered that you came here to remember
    And look I made the news again
    In Requiem, with all my friends

    There is no shame here, I feel no loss
    The pawn and king both in the same box
    And no one famous
    Please don't panic
    It looks so tragic
    All switching seats on the Titanic
    I'm sad to go
    Hope you enjoy the show

    Oh my friends I hear you sing
    The Lord's my shepherd, really what a song to sing
    Why bring me flowers
    When you know that I can't smell a thing
    For the folks I leave behind
    I'm in Heaven, well, imagine my surprise
    I'm really flattered that you came here to remember
    And look I made the news again
    In Requiem, with all my friends

    Oh my friends I hear you say
    A lot of lovely things about me here today
    I'm glad you didn't let the truth get in the way
    To all my friends I leave behind
    They put a spread on so let's all go back to mine
    I really love it that you came here to remember
    And look we made the news at ten
    In Requiem with all my friends
    This dying ain't much of a living no no
    Will we want what we're given heaven knows

    Oh my friends I hear you sing
    The Lord's my shepherd, really what a song to sing
    Why bring me flowers
    When you know that I can't smell a thing
    For the folks I leave behind
    I'm in Heaven, well, imagine my surprise
    I'm really flattered that you came here to remember
    And look I made the news again
    In Requiem, with all my friends

    Oh my friends I hear you sing
    The lord's my shepherd really what a song to sing
    Why bring me flowers when you
    Know that I can't smell a thing
    For the folks I leave behind
    I'm in heaven well imagine my surprise
    I'm really flattered that you came here to remember
    And look I made the news again
    In Requiem with all my friends
    With all my friends
