This all feels far too real/
The bell that tolls for us again//
A love that made us all good friends/
Takes one more to the other end//

A concave heart, she never knew/
Without disease she saw right through us//
But still she sits and holds our hand/
Reminding us of where we stand//

When all they leave is a story/
We’ll confide in mourning glory///

He wore a hat of familiar stars/
And for others’ troubles he went far//
In vacant thoughts that hold the truth/
Our dear friend’s father is saintly proof//

When all they leave is a story/
We’ll confide in mourning glory///

If death comes here before we wake/
Pray to god our souls to take//
Celebrate this life we’ve won/
And applaud the songs we’ve sung//

When all we leave is a story/
They’ll confide in mourning glory///
