They let you know three years ago
Figured I'd pay a visit
Did you think you'd been forgotten?
Pile of bones wrapped in the cleanest cotton

Shutting out the ghosts around
That call out your name
Laughing in the face of fear and woe
You told me you were ready to go

You asked me to stay
I left for Chicago
You said Chicago can wait

Moon was bright, it stole the night
And followed me home
Leaving you alone in your prison
Hope was gone when the sun had risen

I'm haunted by those shiny eyes
That begged me for comfort
But your hands were too weak to hold
And your lips were cracking and cold

You are fading peacefully, I'm told
