lyrics

When I die, burn the body
I don't want to suffocate
Under six feet of lamentations
Sorrow and dry weight

Don't you ever sing alone
In the quiet of the tile echo
Ever sing alone
Cause the quiet cannot keep you
No, quiet never keeps you quite at home

And on the off-chance that there's no heaven
Send my ashes to the sea
So at least I'll reach the ends of the earth
and the water will remember me

Don't you ever sing alone
In the quiet of the tile echo
Ever sing alone
Cause the quiet cannot keep you
No, quiet never keeps you quite at home

I'll only die when you've forgotten
I'll only fade if you're away
I'll only sing when you are listening
I'll only laugh if you're okay

We can kiss when no one's looking
Hold hands when they're nearby
We can sing until it's light out
We can dance until we die

No you'll never sing alone
In the quiet of the tile echo
Never sing alone
Cause the quiet cannot keep you
No quiet never keeps you quite at home
