Death, So Strange, When a Stranger Dies

Death, so strange when a stranger dies

I hear, I sigh, I continue on my merry life

A mother will cry and children will tear

Friends will suffer, and a wife will wonder

What life has in store for her youthful fair

Now robbed of its conductor, now laid bare

I hear, I sigh, I continue on my merry life

A plane flies, a body in tow

Broken hearts look to the heavens

Broken hearts look to the ground

No longer of this world, the joy has gone

Loss is the pain that stabs, and it will stab

again and again and again.

I hear, I sigh, I continue my merry life.

Then it happens.

Now my love has gone, and I stare outside

They walk by, they coff their hat, they know

They hear, they sigh, they walk by

Upon their merry life.
