When I'm Gone - Lyrics

by Joey+Rory

A bright sunrise will contradict the heavy fog that weighs you down
In spite of all the funeral songs
The birds will make their joyful sounds

You’ll wonder why the earth still moves
You’ll wonder how you’ll carry on
But you’ll be okay on that first day when I’m gone

Dusk will come with fireflies and whippoorwill and cricket’s call
And every star will take its place
In silvery gown and purple shawl

You’ll lie down in our big bed
Dread the dark and dread the dawn
But you’ll be alright on that first night when I’m gone

You will reach for me in vain
You’ll be whispering my name
As if sorrow were your friend
And this world so alien

But life will call with daffodils
And morning glorious blue skies
You’ll think of me some memory
And softly smile to your surprise

And even though you love me still
You will know where you belong
Just give it time, we’ll both be fine
When I’m gone

Protect your loved ones,

Get your own
Affairs in Order
Before it is too late

Protect your loved ones,

Get your own
Affairs in Order
Before it is too late

Protect your loved ones &

Get your Own
Affairs in Order
Before it is too late!

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, all come from earth, and to earth all return.

Ashes to ashes,
dust to dust,
all come from earth,
and to earth all return.
