leave a letter

 

When I die
I hope you won't be
mourning and speaking through tears of my name
I hope and trust that you'll remember
all we had down memory lane

When I die I start to wonder
will I be wise and unfazed by fear
If so, i'll go with grace to the ground
and no, there will be no tears

When I die
go leave a letter in my grave
that tells me all you never told me
and ill write back one day

When I die
please go collecting
all the lies that I have told
and tie to them to stones that are sinking
too waters dark and cold

When I die
please don't remember
all the lines I crossed inside your mind
and don't forget the silence
that followed every time

When I die
go leave a letter in my grave
that tells me all you never told me
and i'll write back one day

When I die
Don't show my children
the grave they dug to keep me all alone
and tell them not to stand above me
'cause Im not there
forever I'm at home

When I die
go leave a letter in my grave
that tells me all you never told me
and i'll write back one day
