On The Day

On the day I die the sun will rise
Though you wipe tears from your eyes
Flowers bloom and birds will sing
Clocks will chime and phones will ring
People waiting for their trains
Watch forecasters predicting rains

When you put me in the ground
The world will still be whirling round
Lights turn on and leaves will fall
Bills are payed and cars will stall
Coffee still will burn your tongue
Even though my time is done

When there’s nothing more to do
There’ll be nothing more to say
You’ll eat good food and stretch your hands
Learn guitar and make new plans
While I lay here in my grave
And you go on with your day
I hope you’re smiling
And you know I’m smiling
Because you'll be smiling on your way
