"Today's the Day" as written by and Lucy Kaplansky Rick Litvin....
You taught me how to win the card games we used to play
I could always beat the other kids but the bets are off today
Tonight's the night I'll say goodbye the last time that I can
I'll kiss your sleeping head and hold your dying hand
Out beyond this silent room, out beyond this blood we share
There's a place we both know; I will meet you there.
 
Today's the day I will let go of what you'll never be
It's the imprint of how you lived that shines so bright in me
There was music from your hands and music filling up your room
There were numbers filling yellow pads, all these close to you
Out beyond this silent room, out beyond this blood we share
There's a place we both know; I will meet you there.
 
And finally I've been the daughter I should be
You called me your beloved the last time you looked up to me
Tomorrow I'll sing the lullaby you used to sing to me
From a children's book you found somewhere with a made up melody
Out beyond this silent room, out beyond this blood we share
There's a place we both know; I will meet you there
I will meet you there.
