Life and ever after

 

For our world you havent left any looks

Theres just an empty space where you stood

Were standing in a queue, and weve come to say goodbye

And we know its too soon, but you had to die

 

Everything changes in life and ever after

We stand here and cry, but remember your laughter

Its too loud for a dead one, how wed loved it alive

We will follow you mate, but itll take us a while

 

Now I am the next one to see you off

Its the last words you said that I am thinking of

Wish me good luck on my way, if you can,

And would you, please, leave a penny for the ferryman?

 

Everything changes in life and ever after

We stand here and cry, but remember your laughter

Its too loud for a dead one, how wed loved it alive

We will follow you mate, but itll take us a while

 

I throw the penny and ask if you dont mind

Reserving me a seat on your cloud at your side

 

Everything changes in life and ever after

We stand here and cry, but remember your laughter

Its too loud for a dead one, how wed loved it alive

We will follow you mate, but itll take us a while

Everything changes in life and ever after

We stand here and cry, but remember your laughter

Its too loud for a dead one, how wed loved it alive

We will follow you mate, but itll take us a while

And hopefully its gonna take a long time
