The Rememberance Ballad


These days are closing in
The end has become apparent
We're only here for so long
Will anyone remember my name
When time has washed away the dust of our ashes?
When my head rests in a velvet lined casket?
What's out there?
What is my eternal fate?
It only just recently hit me
That this life is just a state
Mortality fading
Like the innocence of love
I'm scared to death of what's to become

Of my immortal soul of this eternal flame
Will you remember?
Will your heart sing with pain?

Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?

All those things you couldn't say
You should have said
All those I love you's lost
Weighed more like lead on your chest

What if I could take back all those misspent days?
Every second of anger, I would wash my sins away
