I pulled the trench coat closer to my neck I was looking for you, were you looking for me?

Gone.

I pulled the trench coat closer to my neck

I was looking for you, were you looking for me?

The rain poured from the heavens but it could easily have been hell

I can't see you, can you see me?

The rough wool scraped my cheek

The trench coat stuck to my skin under the weight of water

I'm searching for you, are you searching for me?

The coat becomes heavy against my chest

The sodden coat feels like my heavy heart

I want you, do you want me?

As I stand alone in a crowd of people

I ache for you to be with me

I need you, do you need me?

The cords of the coffin coiled at the sides

People take position and unfurl the cords

I can't feel you, do you feel me?

The moist soil hits hardwood

That's it, over and done, no more to be said

I miss you, do you miss me?

Walking away so cold and sad

But a warmth comes over me you're holding my hand

I love you and I know you love me

Goodbye dad
