  • If I die at 23
    Won't you bury me
    In the sunshine?
    Please let me know
    That you're still mine.
    Though I'm gone,
    My love for you
    Is, oh, so strong.

    and when the grass grows over me,
    Let me know
    You still love me.
    Never put nobody else
    Above me.
    Then I'll know
    My love for you
    Will always grow.
