lyrics

Hung up the phone,
collapsed into my arms
Can't believe it's true
he just cleaned out his car,
left some trash in the front yard.

Walked reluctantly
in the front door,
as our feet stood shaking
on the carpeted floor
It was quiet in the funeral parlor.

And late that night
As she laid down and cried
She looked out the window and whispered "Goodnight"
Searched out the clouds for his spirit in the sky
At his grave across the front yard.

He burst
into tears,
as a child who faces
unforeseen fears
As he remembered when they played in the backyard

Our tears fell down
on the frozen ground
"Amen," we say
as we slowly walk away
from the place in the graveyard

And every night,
as his mother cries
she looks out the window and whispers "Goodnight"
Searches the clouds for his spirit in the sky
at his grave across the front yard.
