lyrics

Death will come to you, However you want it to, As someone you once knew, So you won’t be afraid.
And though we never met, I am someone you’ll never forget, I’m a solitary regret, I’m the unborn babe.
And there’s no shame, nothing to explain, and there’s no pain, in the end.
Everyone, before you has done, this you’re not the only one, trust your final friend.
You’re not alone.

<chorus> So I will stay and walk with you a while,
You’ll complete with me your final mile
As you put yourself on trial,
Don’t be afraid

Everything you did, From the time that you were a kid, Was completely connected, By a single strand.
You grew from young to old, ‘Til the moment your body lies cold, Your story was always told, By a man.
You never had a voice, did you ever have a choice, was there too much noise, filling up your head.
Speak out loud, shout over the crowd, try to be proud, say what must be said,
You’re not alone.

<chorus> So I will stay and walk with you a while,
You’ll complete with me your final mile
As you put yourself on trial,
Don’t be afraid
<solo>

No judgement day, no matter what they say, it doesn’t work that way, and now you know.
You must forgive yourself, forget about everyone else, you consign yourself to hell, if you don’t let go.
It’s hard to see, if you chose differently, how things would be, what might have been
In the time you have, you should be glad, you loved like mad, until the end
And you’re not alone.

<chorus> So I will stay and walk with you a while,
You’ll complete with me your final mile
As you put yourself on trial,
Don’t be afraid

about

Jason Deeble Connecticut

I'm a middle school math teacher, author/illustrator, and insufferable tea snob. I used to play drums in a cover band but we sort of fell apart. After that, I couldn't find anyone to make music with me anymore so I went off and did my own thing. Thanks very much for checking out my biography. I hope you enjoy my music. ... more
