lyrics

Tonight the breath of death blew in
Rattled the blinds and knocked over the bin
Opened the door without ringing the bell
We knew, we could feel it all too well.

The paramedics came with their yellow truck
Tonight’s the night when death’s in luck
Parked in the street front for all to see
For tonight there’s a new emergency.

And all the oxygen and all the talk
Can’t give you the strength to get up and walk
Though your blood is thick with sugary tears
The morphine has sucked away your fears.

For tonight’s the night you’ll sail away
There’s nothing else to do or say
The drama’s over, the play must end
Adieu, father, lover, friend.
