Alive Like Me – Only Forever lyrics

If I'm dead and this
Is playing at my funeral
Then to my body I beg
Rest your tired head.
You were exactly who you
Promised you would be,
Just rest in peace.

You knew that this day was coming
They said that this never ends well
Oh well
Don't be afraid this is just forever.

So let me say what I've been dying to say,
My words are spoken for but I’ll try to explain.

Yeah I’ll try to explain

And there’s nothing that will stop
The clocks from from spinning,
No cure for time itself
It’s not a curse to be lifted
Don't blink won't want to miss it.

It’ll pass you by,
And you've heard a thousand times now
It’s not a curse to be lifted,
But it’s enough to make you lose your mind.
While they’re all searching for things that don't exist
(For things that don't exist)
We will be just fine knowing that we lived

If I'm dead and this
Is playing at my funeral
Then to my body I beg
Rest your tired head.

Unless you think there’s somewhere else
You have to be (x2) Just rest in peace (x2)

And you can bury me
But you'll never bury my words.

You'll never bury my words
(Words) x3

It’s not a curse to be lifted
But it’s enough to make you lose your mind

While they’re all searching for things that don't exist
They’re running down all the time they could have spent
We will be just fine knowing that we lived

If I'm dead and this
Is playing at my funeral
Then to my body I beg
Rest your tired head
Unless you think there’s somewhere
Else you have to be
Just rest in peace

In my head I’ll find
A place for every memory to hide
I’ll spend forever losing track of time

You were exactly who you
Promised you would be x2
Just rest in peace
Don't be afraid this is just forever
