Got a postcard, a postcard from my better place
And it read, "I wish you were here, I wish you were"
And A sountrack, A soundtrack from A better night
And it sang, "I wish you were here. You should have stayed here"

As light leaves my eyes
I realize I must have died
It looks like I didn't make it through the night
I'm never gonna say goodbye
I'm never gonna say anything at all against the world

That barely knew I was alive
Sing a requiem for me
Make it sad but sweet
A song about release
A minor key symphony

Found a letter
A letter from my dear old friend
And it said, "I wish you were here, I wish you were"
And a prayer, a prayer in a familiar voice
And she wept, "I wish you were here, why can't you be here?"
As light leaves my eyes
I realize I must have died
It looks like I didn't make it through the night
I'm never gonna say goodbye
I'm never gonna say anything at all against the world

That barely knew I was alive
Sing a requiem for me
Make it sad but sweet
A song about release
A minor key symphony

I got your flowers today
So perfectly arranged
With a card attached, that says "Sorry you could not stay"
They came a little late, I had to wait to reply
There's no tears up here
But surely I would have cried

To everyone I loved.
To all the ones I left.
I never meant to leave.

I'm never gonna say goodbye
I'm never gonna say anything at all against the world

That barely knew I was alive
Sing a requiem for me
Make it sad but sweet
A song about release
A minor key symphony

Sing a requiem for me
Make it sad but sweet
A song about release
A minor key symphony
