In The Event Of My Demise

How long will you mourn me,
Not at all, it's not your concern
For if you were to mourn me
It would make my heart burn
Feel the cold wind surround you
Enjoy the embraces of new lovers
Hold on to yourself, only you
Don't wish for me under covers
I was dead and buried and pitied
Don't you join along in tune
You never loved as I lived simply
Working for and thinking of you
Don't falsely lay out tears
In the coming of my demise
Alone for your remaining years
I am nothing but the sky
So do not mourn me when I die
Your lovely lies shall end tonight
