If you ever climb mount Everest
Towards the top you'll find a little cottage
Inside there is a wise old man
I sat beside him, he taught me what he knew
"You'll know when the time is right
To say 'I love you', to say 'goodbye'
Everyone leaves this world, nobody dies"
He said "Nobody dies"

When all your friends gather around
He said "Take a bow"
While all your friends flutter about
He said "Lower your brow, take a bow"

Out back of the cottage
You'll find a trail to nowhere
The signs will not lead you home
But to where you are free to roam
"You'll know when the curtains close
You'll know when to exit the stage
You'll know that you've lost you're way
But son don't worry, cause life's a play"
He said "Life's a play"

When all your friends gather around
He said "Take a bow"
While all your friends mope about
He said "Lower your brow, take a bow"
