lyrics

Death came calling, and I do believe
For Death tells no lies when he comes to me
And I cried over your bones

So I took your books and I took your clothes
And I took your chair and your lock of hair
And I laid them across your grave and I knelt down and I learned to pray
And I cried over your bones

So I asked my mother how to ease the pain
And I asked the Preacher, I asked him the same
They said "Kneel down and learn to pray"
So I spoke to God- but I felt the same
And I cried over your bones
