lyrics

in the night, or at noon
in november or the 6th of june
in the distance or coming soon
we all have our day

in the light, on the down
in a gutter or on sacred ground
stanley thin or oliver round
we’re all on our way
to that final holiday

everybody’s gonna die, so why not try
to spread some sunshine before the rain
everybody disappears, it might take years
but they’re leaving all the same

mahatma gandhi, doris day,
adolph hitler, eager hemingway,
alexander or his lowest slave,
again and again
and again

you can love, you can hate,
you can hurry, you can hesitate,
don’t worry, you can never be late
to the end
and it’s better if you bring a friend

everybody’s gonna die, so why not try
to spread some sunshine before the rain
everybody disappears, it might take years
but they’re leaving all the same

everybody gotta go, some fast, some slow
the curtain falls down on the play
everybody’s gonna die, no need to cry
cause you’ll be giving it all away

you can paint, you can sing
fill a diary, document everything
even children won’t soften the sting
they just follow along

don’t feel afraid
or alone
most of us wish for souls stead of bones
lights out, no dawn,
and you never know you’re gone

everybody’s gonna die so why not try
to spread some sunshine before the rain
everybody disappears, it might take years
but they’re leaving all the same

everybody passes on there’s no baton
just a silence that ends the song
everybody’s gonna die so why can’t i
start singing along, start singing along
i’m gonna sing out strong
