when we die

lyrics and music by Nathan Davis

One more shot of whiskey
One more glass of beer
Not much more to do at night
When you live around here

And all the faces in these places come without a name
Things aren't important when the faces look the same

So we have another drink
Try to sit and think
Watch the lonely people walking by
We lay us down to sleep
Pray our minds to keep
Until the day turns into one more lullaby
When we die
When we die

Say goodbye to innocence
Winners gonna lose
Take away our consciences
We never got to choose

Try not to get comfortable
Put on your walking shoes
Run away from everything
Life xxxxx (unintelligible)

When you're lonely it all seems to fade into nothing
Nothing for you to feel
The ocean is perfectly still...

So we have another drink
Try to sit and think
Watch the lonely people walking by
We lay us down to sleep
Pray our minds to keep
Until the day turns into one more lullaby

So we have another drink
Try to sit and think
Watch the lonely people walking by
We lay us down to sleep
Pray our minds to keep
Until the day turns into one more lullaby
When we die
Oh, when we die

On the day you were born, the world as we know it instantly became a much more interesting place to live. While you were here, all the colors seemed a little more electric. With you gone, it's like dancing to the silence.

I remember...every little thing, every day. And every day, you live on through your music, which continues to reach out and bring people together.

Happy birthday, my friend.

Ria Von

You commanded their respect if they liked you or not. You made people stop and listen whether they wanted to [or not]. You demanded their attention and made them listen and feel what you [were] dedicated to. That my friend is true talent, like it or not.

Miss you. Happy birthday, ole friend.
