I would dig a thousand holes to lay next to you
I would dig a thousand more if I needed to
I look around the grave for an escape route of old routines
There doesn’t seem to be any other way

Cause I’ve started falling apart I’m not savouring life
I’ve forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

Crazy as it sounds you wont feel as low as you feel right now
At least that’s what I've been told by everyone
I whisper empty sounds in your ear and hope that you won’t let go
Take the pieces and build them skywards

Cause I've started falling apart I’m not savouring life
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

I've started falling apart I'm not savouring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

I've started falling apart I'm not savouring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

I've started falling apart I'm not savouring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

Take the pieces and build them skywards
And
Take the pieces and build them skywards
And
Take the pieces and build them up to the sky.

    I loved this song and as a 45 year old mother it was via my son, we sadly lost him this year and this song means even more and every lyric means even more just deeper and sadder. It took on a whole new different meaning to me,just as this is about a funeral but not any funeral ,a life with a deep and meaningful and sad end. This is my anthem for the rest of my life,

    listen to the lyrics
    its about a funeral
    i know that its kinda in your face, but its put forward subtly
    and how it feels to lose someone, and how you shouldnt take your life for granted.
    but with a song like this, it can have several meanings, and this is my interperatation
    thanks
