Don't take another day away from me
Cause I don't got many as it stands
Here on the rooftop screaming like the world stopped
Another cigarette for both of us hold my hand
I'll take us both to the top of the world if I can

Cause mama it's ok, tonight I'm going to sing with Elvis
And we will sing a couple songs just for your ears so sing along and hey
If I go down in the quicksand don't grab my hand
Just play me as loud as you can
Cause tonight I'm singing with

And daddy's sitting in the corner with Cash when Mr. Moon picks up the beat
I hear the sound of someone warming the strat while they wait for me
And Freddie says that I can stay, that I don't have to be afraid this time
The angels filling up the place and Carly's walking she's the first in line

Remember the days we thought we were golden and that all these nights were ours
Remember my face, remember the rooftops
Do you remember the stage, when all of it's broken not to show your favorite scars
A smile on your face, we'll count only our stars

    I actually think he's dying in the song. I think he's telling his mother he's going to sing with elvis, it's a metaphor of him dying.

    "this song is all about saying, “hey, if it's my time to go tomorrow, then i'll be okay. I'm fine with what i've done and the decisions i've made. I've loved and lost. I've cried and i've found ways to smile after. And at the end of the day, that's more than a lot of people get to say. ”" straight from jason's mouth, via altpress's track by track,
    when he says "and daddys standing of the corner with cash" (johnny cash) "while mr. Moon picks up the beat" (keith moon drummer from the who) and later he says "and freddy says that i can stay" (freddy mercury from queen) all these people are dead and he wants to meet them when he dies and clearly sing with elvis (the king)
