This is a song for a boy
Who I thought was a god
But he's dead, so I guess
He's not immortal after all
This is a song to remember
Every moment spent together
In the bath or under covers
This is a song for my lover

I'll be talking with my father
And you'll be walking into water
I'll be sitting down to dinner
And you'll be floating down the river
I'll be singing in the shower
And you'll be fertilizing flowers
I'll be sleeping at eleven
And you'll be looking down from heaven

And it's so lonely being in love with you
It's so lonely being in love with you
It's so lonely being in love with you

Did you ever say, “that'll be the day when I die”?
Did you ever say, “that'll be the day when I die”?
Did you ever say, “that'll be the day when I die”?
Did you ever say, “that'll be the day when I die”?
I'll be talking with my father
And you'll be walking into water
I'll be sitting down to dinner
And you'll be floating down the river
I'll be singing in the shower
And you'll be fertilizing flowers
I'll be sleeping at eleven
And you'll be looking down from heaven
