lyrics

Stranger, passing.
Why should you not speak with me?
Why should I not speak with you?

Stranger, living.
Why should you not look to me?
Why should I not look to you?

My friend. Loving.
Tell me you accept me
And I'll accept all of you.

Father. Dying.
I know how you love me.
You know how I love you.

Mother. Crying.
Hold me till it' s right again.
Hold me and I'll hold you.

Family. Come back.
Be more than a memory.
Be what cannot fade.

Reaper. Leave me.
It is not my time to go.
It is not your time to take.

Stranger, passing.
Read what's carved into the stone.
Take a part of me with you.

Stranger, living.
More than I'll ever be.
Less than I was before you.

Stranger, passing.
Why should you not speak with me?
Why should I not speak with you?
