The One to Leave

Gunshots ringing in my ears

Your death has festered all my fears

Yet all my longings

I know of your pain and all your tears

Always wise beyond my years

But I never guessed

Ohhhh

That you would be the one---to—leave—

(chorus)

That you would be the to fly free

That I would be the one left to grieve

In your wake

The in black suits have come to take you away

In your new bed, your large black crate

That was meant to hold me

But you let go first

You wrote your ending

(end chorus)

Time run short and blood runs cold

Just like bodies life gets old,

Time gets old

You always did just as you were told

You must have thought your soul was sold

Already

I can't think of any other reason

….That

You would be the one to leave

(chorus)

It takes courage and stupidity

Someone was left tending…

Your grave.

(quietly)

Gunshots ringing in my ears

Your death has festered all---my---fears---

….You were the one to leave

(chorus slight change)

That you were the one to fly free

That I was the one left to grieve

In your wake

The men in black suits have come to take you away

In your new bed your large black crate

That was meant to hold me

You wrote your ending

(end chorus w/slight change)

You----wrote your----ending----
