You breathing into my mouth
I'll take it
I'll take it for you

You wanna sing
Then sing it for me
You got somehitng
Left to say

Untie me
We're taking away
Unlikely
Out of time

When you still got
So much to say
I'll write it
A song for you

But oh
What a way to go
So peaceful
You're smiling

Oh what a way to go
I'm with you
I'm singing

You said
There's a special place
And it's scaring
The shit out of me

In Memphis
On Valentine's day
You wrote it
In a letter to me

Well I wish I had given you more time
To say thank you
My beautiful friend

But sometimes you gotta send it away
To bring it
To bring it back again

But oh what a way to go
So peaceful
He's smiling

Oh what a way to go
I'm with you
I'm singing

You'll always
Have open eyes
You'll always
Have a special place

In Memphis
On Valentine's day
Die suddenly
At a wonderful age
We're ready
We're ready to go
When you still got so much to say

Somehow I know
You drank and stole
Receiving just everything

But oh
What a way to go
So peaceful
You're smiling

Oh what a way to go
I know that you're smiling

Oh
What a way to go
So peaceful
I'm singing

Oh
What a way to go
I know that
You're smiling
You're peaceful
You're smiling
You're peaceful
You're smiling

I know that
You're smiling
You're peaceful
You're smiling
