When your way gets dark, baby
Turn your lights up high
When your way gets dark, baby
Turn your lights up high
See that old grim reaper, baby
Come-a-easin' by
He come-a-easin' by
Got up this morning, baby
I said my morning prayer
Got up this morning, baby
And I said my morning prayer
That old grim reaper, baby
Was-a-standin' there
He was-a-standin' there
That old grim reaper, baby
Well he's a freind of mine
That old grim reaper, baby
Honey, he's a freind of mine
Twenty-four years old now, baby
And I don't mind dyin'
I said I don't mind dyin'
I'm going away, baby
To a world unknown
I'm going away now, baby
To a world unknown
I'm goin' away, baby
Honey, don't you wanna go?
Honey, don't you wanna go?

    General CommentWhy has no one commented on this song?
    It's so laid back, and smooth, and just so amazing.
    Guy Blakeslee is a musical genius.

    General CommentAnother great song...

    Not sure what it's about... a personal experience from Guy?

    Song MeaningWell it's about a man (guessing it's a guy because it's sung by a guy) who's telling his lover(?) not to be afraid of death. He hints that he's going to die, and then even more ominously asks the person he's singing to if he or she would follow him.
