They unfolded your lives one by one
They laid out your patchwork under the sun
And people gathered from miles around
To witness your quilt spread on the ground
And then they called out your name
Oh, yes they called out your name
Oh, and you will live forever
You know that I'll be loving you
Just like a patchwork quilt
Well, there were men and women, mothers and fathers
Sisters and brothers, daughters and sons
And children and babies, and lovers and friends
They all lay before me sewn into one
Your lives had meaning and your lives had joy
You touches so many people, many more than you will know
And you wrapped yourselves around me as I walked along these rows
You're letting me feel your beautiful souls
I feel the warmth of your lives
Oh, and you will live forever
You know that I'll be loving you
Just like a patchwork quilt
My heart spills over, flowing with tears
I cry for your suffering and for your shortened years
And I'll take you with me as I walk away
Remembering you who have died with AIDS
Yes, I remember your names
Oh, I remember your names
Oh, and you will live forever
You know that I'll be loving you
Just like a patchwork quilt
