and lay me down on a bed of roses.
Sink me in the river at dawn,
send me away with the words of a love song.
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother,
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it oughtta be, no
Ain't even gray, but she buries her baby
The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had just enough time...
