Drank himself inside every beautiful drop
Now he's lying in the bed where the morphine doesn't stop
Every beautiful light burning out of his eyes
The end is in there sitting by his side

So tonight we're here on Paula's porch
Singing songs and carrying a torch
For a man who's leaving us behind

Battled his whole life the chemical war
Needing what would only leave him needing more
All our loving arms from sea to shining to sea
Couldn't set our beautiful man free

So tonight we're here on Paula's porch
Singing songs and carrying a torch
For a man who's leaving us behind

As he lies in bed bathed in the TV band
(he is leaving now)
As the gold sun sets over November sand
(he is leaving now)
As we say his name and softly take his hand
(he is leaving now)
He is leaving now, lifting from the land

So tonight we're here on Paula's porch
Singing songs til our voices grow hoarse
Play the flute and I'll bang my guitar
For a man who's heading to the stars
So he will always know where we are
