about

This song is a conversation, an observation, and a salutation all in one. One of the convers'ees' is on his deathbed, one of them isn't — yet. I imagine it's a grandparent and grandchild; but what do I know?

lyrics

What was the last of your final thoughts?
Did you miss all your chances, and all the times you fought?

Does she know you love her
even though she isn't here?
Did they all come true—all the things you feared?

Here at the end, what have you left to lose?
No don't say or death might take ours too.

We got married standing in shared graves.
In them we'll grow separate one day.

Our memories shared will float away.
But the trees well watered will have to stay.

No matter whom you love
and how much they hate you
each of us must die alone.

Pretty clothes and ashes,
Gardens of bones.
As you go onwards, I'll wave alone.
