Eels Skywriting Lyrics

Last updated: 02/15/2008 10:00:00 AM

Don't cry
All the songs you sing
All the flowers you bring
I'm part of everything there ever was
And will be

Go on
You've got places to be
So many things to see
Don't worry 'bout me
I'm already where i should be

Look up
A plane writes in the sky
For every passerby
No one ever dies
They just write things in the sky

If you
Wanna think about me
Look out above the sea
And you can see that I am doing
Just fine

This song is a perfect song for coping with death. I love it. It really makes you rethink the way a person would want you to act after they died. Instead of wallowing in shame, regret, or guilt, you should understand that you made a difference in the life that they led, even if it was a small one, and you helped shape the person that they had become. When someone dies, they aren't completely gone. They live on in you and the other people that were connected to them. They live on in the sky, "writing" their memories in their experiences to be seen by everyone else. The song makes me feel this way. I'm not saying that's how everyone should take the song, but it is how I perceived it..

I'm playing this song when I die.
