At your funeral
Things will be different
I will feel so good

I'll pass out cigars
Bring a big ol' cake
& a keg, yes!
I can hardly wait


Until they read your eulogy
I'll laugh at your family
"Lets be honest guys", I'll say
"Better late then never"

There were lines I didn't want crossed
There were times spent sick with regret
Sleepless nights replaying in my head
But then I opened my eys
To the light of the news
I'm so glad I live to see the day


Hey! At your funeral
Our old friends will be surprised to see me
Smiling again. I'll bring a date
Rolling in the flowers we'll make
Ourselves at home
I can hardly wait

    General Commentwhoever wrote the lyrics provobly isnt having such a good time with his girlfriend, or who ever, really, and is just taking it out in writing. it's not as though the person is dead yet, i think the lyricist is just pissed off at the person...

    dont you ever say "OHG OD I WANT TO FUCKING KILL THAT PERSON"


    or on the lines there of..

    General CommentI think that this song is about Billie's(or whoever wrote it) girlfriend cheating on him, an example is this line:
    "Sleepless nights replaying in my head"

    This is about after, when he found out, that she wasn't the one for him, look at these lines:
    "But then I opened my eys
    To the light of the news
    I'm so glad I live to see the day."

    The parts about that he'll be laughing at her funeral is about that even though he found out, that she wasn't the one for him, he loved her very much, so he hates her for cheating on him.
