  • Your mother was crying
    Your father passed her a handkerchief
    Their tear-stained faces
    Looked to mine for a sign of grief
    A thousand raincoats
    Always stand around too long
    But I stayed to talk with you
    After they had gone.

    The flowers I brought you
    Were beginning to fade under the heavy rain
    Your name on the card had run
    So I tried in vain to write it again
    They didn't understand you, no!
    They didn't even try
    I'm so glad that you left us now
    Before you had the chance to die.

    I sat there for a long time,
    Expecting to turn and see you there
    I ran my fingers through the long grass
    Willing it to turn into your hair, and oh
    I'm gonna miss you, dear
    But I don't have to cry

    I'm so glad that you left us now,
    Before you had the chance to die
    And oh, I'm going to miss you dear,
    But I'm not going to cry
    I'm so glad that your life stopped now,
    Before it had the chance to die.
