"Fortunately Gone" as written by and Kim Deal....
I wait for you in heaven
On this perfect string of love
And drink your soup of magpies in a
Pottery bowl that looks
As I am now, brown, round and warm

Chime on a rain wet
An ankle, toes or two
Sweetly as it drops upon your head
Just like it did today

Fortunately gone
I wait for you

Chime on a rain wet
An ankle, toes or two
Sweetly as it drops upon your head
Just like it did today

Fortunately gone
I wait for you

    General CommentNot sure when it was written, but it's featured on Michael "Eyedea" Larson's acoustic CD that came out after he died, 'When in Rome, Kill the King'. I like to think it was written for him. A great, talented artist who's life was cut short early.
