3. That Day

Verse 1
I had a dream where today was That Day
and all our friends were gathered ‘round where you lay
without the pain.
And I was telling everyone how I’d miss you,
but it wasn’t a shame that you were gone
because you’d wanted this for so long.

Chorus
If today was That Day
then I’ve been planning what to say
since I was seventeen and you were twenty-one.
I’d hoped to be a-hundred-and-three or more
on That Day.

Verse 2
In my dream where today was That Day,
I was reading out your poems to all our friends
in your name.
I was looking for you between your words,
looking for me in everything you’d left behind.

Chorus
If today was That Day
then I’ll just have to be ok without you.
Although I’d hoped to be a-hundred-and-three or more
on That Day.
I’d be ok.

Outro
I won’t say stay,
Although I’d hoped to be a-hundred-and-three or more.
(so don’t go)
So don’t go without being sure.
Don’t go without being sure.
