lyrics

Say it's not true, I'm begging of you
She's not supposed to be on her own
Say it's not so, she loved him ya know
When they kissed she would swear it was grace
Now she fights for each breath that she takes

Are we really alive if we're dying inside
How can something so wrong be made right
Well I heard you once say that it would all be okay
But the only thing that I feel is pain
Oh my God, please don't leave things this way

In a place of brightness, with the saints all before him
Where tragedies drown in the infinite chorus
Of drinking and laughing and of dreaming like children
May he open his eyes where the music's more beautiful
Where the music's more beautiful

Where the air's not so heavy, for the wind blows inside him
And the sails of his soul finally reach the horizon
Oh God in your mercy remember your kindness
Give rest to the soul of the boy that you love
Give rest to the soul of the boy that she loved

Once Mary cried out with her son in the ground
And she held the pain close to her heart
As her tears fell like rain from the clouds
Until the sadness was finally drowned

In a place of brightness, where he won't be forgotten
Where sorrows are leaves in the breezes of autumn
On streets paved with sunlight as the waves crash behind him
May he open his eyes where the music's more beautiful
Where the music's more beautiful

Where the songs all come easy, for the melody finds him
Until we all meet again, as if never we parted
Oh God in your mercy remember your kindness
Give rest to the soul of the boy that you love
Give rest to the soul of the boy we all loved
Give rest to the soul of the girl that he left
