Lyrics:

On The Day I Leave This World

On the day I leave this world
The sun will still rise in the sky
Birds will take wing; dogs will chase squirrels
Somewhere a newborn babe will cry
Cause on the day I leave this world
This merry-go-round will keep on spinning
And I'm hoping what seems like the end
Will just be a new beginning
On the day I leave this world

On the day I leave this world
Somebody's daughter will be getting married
That foolish boy; that long-legged girl
All the burdens they now carry
But on the day I leave this world
Our love will go on living
And for all the times I may have acted otherwise
I hope that I will be forgiven
On the day I leave this world

Everything comes to an end
Not just good things, bad things too
What's left are seeds in the wind
On the day I leave this world

On the day I leave this world
I'll leave some friends behind me
Somewhere my old pals will play guitars and sing
About how some ties are binding
On the day I leave this world

Cause on the day I leave this world
There will be no need to cry
The sun will still go down at Venice Beach
And I'll try to wave goodbye
On the day I leave this world
