If I was to be gone tomorrow
And you new it today
I wonder how we’d spend the remaining hours
On my life’s terminating train
I think we’d play a song, with a melody so true
Or a clash, of messy chords
Or perhaps we’d sit in silence, and listen one last time
To my favourite records
Just with you my friends

There’s this girl I love, I think I’d call her up
And ask, Hey, would you like to come round
So I can kiss your soft lips and feel your touch
I’d take you to a place that I found
And perhaps there we’d make love in a sea of tears
Gasp for air between broken speech
And I’d tell you I was sorry for all the times passed that I
Failed to reach
Out and hold your hand

Could you please play me a song of yours?
You know the one about going home
Cause your words they make me shiver and reassure me that
I’m never thinking alone
And if I go tomorrow know that I’d wait
However long
For you to come and join me, we’d sit round a fire
And sing song after song after song
Til we can sing no more

If I was to be gone tomorrow
And you new it today
I wonder how we’d spend the remaining hours
On my life’s terminating train
Could you all please come back to my place
There’s something I’ve been meaning to do
Together play a song, with a melody so true
I know I’d be singing it for you
My friends
Won’t you play along?
