Lyrics

The Funeral - Ronnie Glover, Chance Phillips & Ed Toaspern

Dust from the shovel

Backlit by the sun

Standing in silence

Another life done

 

A fistful of earth

Dropped in to a hole

Broken hearts weeping

Another gone soul

 

We think of the family

We gather the friends

We question the answers

A bouquet of loose ends

 

Chorus:

Faith keeps hope alive

The hope that we’re all hoping for

Love lives, love gives

Reality creeps through the door

 Solo

Repeat Chorus

 

Gray skies and dark suits

Black limousines

Plans interrupted 

An end to the means

 

We raise up our glasses

To the memory we toast

Beginnings and endings

Chiseled in stone
