Reflecting from my deathbed
I'm balancing life's riches
Against the ditches
And the flat, grey years in between
All I can see are the never-laid
That's the never-played symphonies

I can't see those who tried to love me
Or those who felt they understood me
And I can't see those who
Very patiently put up with me
All I can see are the never-laid
The never-played symphonies

You were one
You meant to be one
And you jumped into my face and laughed and kissed me on the cheek
And then were gone forever?
...Not quite

Black sky in the daytime
And I don't much mind dying
When there is nothing left to care for anymore
Just the never-laid
The never-played symphonies

You were one
You knew you were one
And you slipped right through my fingers
No, not literally, but metaphorically
And now you're all I see as the light fades

As the light fades...
