"What Happens When We Die" as written by and Luke Michael Haines....
Talking to a girl crying down the phone
Now listen to me and try and catch your breath
She said do you see the fear when you look in my eyes
I'd really like to know what happens when we die
Loving couples together for years
Torn apart by their grieving
We can hardly cope with this level of emotion

Two people cannot mourn for years
A doctor from the north, a friend of the family
Is comforting your mother drinking in the front room
I couldn't make the funeral I know it really hurt you
Right now it just seems to me everybody's dying
(When we die, When we die, When we die, When we die)

When I remember your father as a ghost
Not an old man diagnosed with cancer
Ten weeks later, lying in a hospice bed
Surrounded by loved ones, learning how to die
Talking to a stone, wailing at a grave
Maybe when a year has past, go and see a medium

Bury him with children, blame a suicide
I'd really like to know what happens when we die
Will the dead outnumber the living?
The silent majority, spare parts for surgery
We're not bespoke, we're not best fitted
I'd really like to know what happens when we die
When we die, When we die, When we die, I still miss you
I know I really miss you
