Nothing beats the night of the jumper
The look on the face of the campus was blank as a slate
Who could blame it?
Your mom gave me a hug while she cried
Because she was happy for all she had to be thankful of
The whole town was shaken, but it was all forgotten

We've buried too many friends
We've seen more than our share of things that had to end
And like this we keep them alive in every star-filled sky
I'll wish on you tonight

It was ten of us in three years
Don't tell me there is nothing here to fear
They were brothers and sisters of ours
A coffee shop choir, a unison chorus
Now we're singing their sad songs
The whole town was shaken, and it was all forgotten

We've buried too many friends
We've seen more than our share of things that had to end
And like this we keep them alive in every star-filled sky
I'll wish on you tonight

When we hear the news, it's so customary, so ordinary
I wish it didn't have to be
When we hear the news, it's so customary, so ordinary
I wish it didn't have to be

We've buried too many friends
We've seen more than our share of things that had to end
And like this we keep them alive in every star-filled sky
I'll wish on you tonight
