Reese Lansangan – When It Happens


VERSE I
Oh when it happens
There will be mourning
A tweet storm in my name
My best picture in a frame
That’s how it usually goes
Oh it’s a contest
of who really knew me best
Old photos would be found
Captioned with something profound
A memory nobody knows

CHORUS
Weep for me my darling, dear
Tomorrow, you’ll move on
I will leave my body here
But you’ve got miles to go
In a life I’ll never know
So move on

VERSE II
Oh when it happens
There’ll be unmooring
Visitors in black
Wish for time they can’t get back
Oh it’s a conquest
For who is grieving best
The tragedy is fresh
But when bones are laid to rest
You go on as you were before

CHORUS
Weep for me, my darling dear
Tomorrow you’ll move on
I will leave my body here
But you’ve got miles to go
In a life I’ll never know
So move on

BRIDGE
The Wikipedia articles will be so quick to change
Present tense to past
How someone does this is still strange
The world will talk about it for a week
But I have found that
Everything is just fine without me

CHORUS
Weep for me, my darling dear
Tomorrow you’ll move on
I will leave my body here
While you soar on your own
To a life I’ll never know
So move on along
