City And Colour Body In A Box Lyrics

Last updated: 11/09/2009 10:00:00 AM

There's a funeral procession on the highway,
Traffic screeches to a halt.
There's people searching for a better way,
To live their lives.
Johnny lived a good life, you'll hear them say
As tears of sadness soak the ground.
The reaper crept in, took his breath away,
In the middle of the night.

We celebrate the lives of the dead,
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
While their souls are still searching for the light,
Searching for the light.

So please don't come to me on my dying day,
Just let me go in peace.
With all the things that I forgot to say,
Racing through my mind.
And don't you bury me six feet under ground,
Just burn my body in a box.
And let my ashes blow with the wind,
Out into the night sky.

Heroes | Reviewer: Zack Ritchie | 11/8/09

I would have to say this is probably my favorite song of all time. It almost brings a tear to my eye each time I hear it, I think it is the best song ever written about 'The Highway of Heroes'. Dallas continues to impress, and touch many people's lives.

Amazing! | Reviewer: Rob Nixon | 3/5/08

this song works on so many levels it's well put together and well held together by the lyrics which are stunning. Dallas Green's voice is just out of this world, the use of harmonica is perfect and the pace of the song could not be better 10/10
