The Dearly Departed

We could take their pain away

So they could live another day

We could tell them what they're fighting for

So they can try another door

Couldn't we just take all these children

So they could laugh another day

So they don't have to die today

Couldn't we just take all these victimes

So they could feel as if their lives have started

Say hello the Dearly Departed

We could find a way to love

Send peace flying like a dove

So we don't have to waste away

Couldn't we just take all these patients

So they could love for another day

So they don't have to waste away

Couldn't we just take all these victimes

So they could feel as if their lives have started

Say hello the Dearly Departed

I wish

One day, one day

So we wouldn't have to pray

So we can live another way

I wish

One day, one day

We wouldn't pass away

So we can live another day

Couldn't we just take all these victimes

So they could feel as if their lives have started

Say hello the Dearly Departed
