about

An old man passed away that lived below me. I never knew his name but I wrote this tune about him and all of the various destinations we are all taught about in the "what comes after."

lyrics

Intro F F/E C C
Verse 1
F C
Sirens were tearing, the silence to pieces.
D/F# G Gsus4 G
And it gave the location, to the scene I would find.
F Am
Dressed in their white robes, like a pack of Christmas angels.
D/F# F F/E C C
Walking behind him, with sweet knowing smiles.

Verse2
Before His ascension, he called to the preacher.
Who had tried to forgive him, for the sins in his life.
Thanks for your efforts, thanks for your kindness.
But as for forgiveness, it comes from inside.

Chorus
Dm Am
The Kingdom of Mystery, it rises above me.
D/F# G Gsus4 G
Could be below me, and on any side.
F Am Am/G
Allah and Jesus, and other fine beings.
D/F# F F/E C C
Are probably weeping, when they look through our eyes.

Keys Solo

Verse 3
White is the color I’ll always remember. When earthly possessions, fall to one side.
He never resisted, there was never a reason. The angels were singing, a song that he’d made.
Chorus
Tag F F/E C C/B Am Am/G
Probably Weeping
