City And Colour – Body In A Box lyrics
There's a funeral procession on the highway,
Traffic screeches to a halt.
There's people searching for a better way,
To live their lives.
Johnny lived a good life, you'll hear them say
As tears of sadness soak the ground.
The reaper crept in, took his breath away,
In the middle of the night.

We celebrate the lives of the dead,
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
While their souls are still searching for the light,
Searching for the light.

So please don't come to me on my dying day,
Just let me go in peace.
With all the things that I forgot to say,
Racing through my mind.
And don't you bury me six feet under ground,
Just burn my body in a box.
And let my ashes blow with the wind,
Out into the night sky.

    Do not be sad when your loved ones have passed away because they would never want you to stop living your life in grief and agony over them. The dead would rather look down upon the ones they left behind and see them happy with successful lives. When death comes to a loved one of a person, it is incredibly emotional. Sometimes people become lost after a death and feel sadness at random moments that stop them from living their own lives. This song is about moving on from a death in peace and to remember the good times of the dead instead of wallow in the bad.
