"Ashes to ashes, dust to dust..."
Hope is shattered, dreams are crushed,
As another friend is sent below,
It's hard to breathe, hard to swallow.

I want to scream, and I wonder why
It's always night when good men die.

Oh if only the world spun backwards,
And there wasn't death to head towards,
And we could live those good times forever,
But the only word I can hear is "never".

And I can hear all those words you said,
But they mean nothing to the dead.

Iíll dry my eyes and do what I must,
But overnight the world has turned to rust;
Itís so much duller here without you,
And I wake pretending this isnít true.

I just want this to be my last goodbye:
Till we are rejoined up in the sky.
Author's Notes:
The dead rest in the sky, watching over the living.
