  1. In The End

From the recording For Fear of Forgetting

In cart Not available Out of stock

Nobody is neutral or indifferent on their deathbed. Everyone rues the same things. Misunderstandings with people. Daft feuds. None of it matters in the face of finitude. This is a 3/4 time waltz that slow-dances to this theme. Rocking to the cradle of death.

Lyrics

In The End

Only love, love, love!
Only love, love, love!
In the end
Precious friend
When tears are spent
And all’s been said

In the end
Make amends
On your deathbed
‘mongst your regrets

Will it
Even matter?
All this talk?
All this chatter?

Toss your coin into the Styx
The ferryman, he tells the wind

There’s only love
In the end
It’s only love that is left
There’s only love
In the end
Love and regret

In the end
You bookend
Life with death
Draw fragile breath

In the end
We all bend
When all has bled
Out, all is dead

Will it even matter?
These emotions? All this anger?

You can toss your ring into the
sea
But its memory still sings to me

There’s only love
In the end
It’s only love that is left
There’s only love
In the end
Only love outlives death.

Life’s too short
For all this fussing and fighting, my friend

And what’s the point in
Wrangling
To the death
To the death
When
In the end

There’s only love
In the end
It’s only love that is left
There’s only love
In the end
Only love conquers death

Only love, love, love, love!
Only love, love, love, love!
