lyrics

there comes a time in everybody's life
when you're past your prime and you hear the chimes
you go to sleep at night and see the light
bright white and guides you to the other side

it seems to me that there's those that can't handle death
they see it as an end but like gandalf said
the journey doesn't end here. death is just another path
the grey curtain of this world rolls back n turns to silver glass

and some might say that i'm just being optimisitc
what proof is there of an afterlife they insist and
say that we just decay and that's a lonely thought
and it goes against everything I was once taught

that we're simply visitors to this planet
if you have a chance at love then grab it
whatever you want you can have it
make the memories with the life that you inhabit

we all live our lives one step at a time
just remember when you die and cross the finishing line
that you left a memory on all those left behind
you will see them once again cos in the end you'll find that

we all live our lives one step at a time
just remember when you die and cross the finishing line
that you left a memory on all those left behind
you will see them once again cos in the end you'll find that
death is the next part of life

come again? yea you heard what i said!
you my friend! are in way over your head
you defend, that it's all a sad event
well i don't care this is a happy song about death

and no i'm not leading no suicide pact
i'm just here trying to establish the fact
that maybe you should take and follow my advice
and see death as a celebration of one's life

like the irish do, we're gonna drink that brew
it's true i took this from p.s. i love you
it's all good, that was pretty great movie
about how you get by and see life's beauty

and i know the afterlife is still a mystery
people fight over religion all through history
it doesn't matter to me, what you believe
cos we're all gonna float away on that cosmic sea

we all live our lives one step at a time
just remember when you die and cross the finishing line
that you left a memory on all those left behind
you will see them once again cos in the end you'll find that

we all live our lives one step at a time
just remember when you die and cross the finishing line
that you left a memory on all those left behind
you will see them once again cos in the end you'll find that
death is the next part of life

atheists saying that there's nothing afterwards
this our life for better or for worst
atheists saying that there's nothing afterwards
this our life for better or for worst

i refuse to believe that i will just cease to be
but most religions seem to be a gossip magazine
i refuse to believe that i will just cease to be
but most religions seem to be a gossip magazine

I - Refuse - to - believe
that i - will just - cease - to - be!

i refuse to believe that i will just cease to be
but most religions seem to be a gossip magazine
and they don't work for me but i have hope for an afterlife
i might be a hypocrit but whatever helps you sleep at night

we all live our lives one step at a time
just remember when you die and cross the finishing line
that you left a memory on all those left behind
you will see them once again cos in the end you'll find that

we all live our lives one step at a time
just remember when you die and cross the finishing line
that you left a memory on all those left behind
you will see them once again cos in the end you'll find that
death is the next part of life
