Lyrics

I was feeling down on my luck yesterday
All my plans were tattered and swept away
And I figured it couldn't get better
So I opened the case and I racked that Beretta
Then the phone rang
And it startled me

Well it was my poor Aunt on the phone
She said “He not doing well
I just wanna go home,
He can’t eat and he can’t barely breathe”
I was struck
What’s the matter with me

It's a funny feeling
When you walk amongst those walls
It's so white and pristine
But you don't feel clean at all
And when I saw him
Laying in that bed
Ya know, I coulda sworn
He was already dead
But he turn called me over
“Ain’t you getting tall”

“They way that they’re talking
I don’t have much time
My body’s decaying
It's the end of the line
Before the Lord takes me
I’ve one last request
Listen here boy
The heart still beats in my chest”

He said
I must be the luckiest boy in the world
Cause I ain't never seen a prettier girl
She stands by me when I’m feeling low
Please take good care of her when I have to go

The world measures strength in all the wrong ways
Either by the body or the things you’re not scared to say
Well how about the strength of living alone
But still being a joy people you know
Never giving up
And living for each day

Well time marched right on
And soon it was her turn
To sit in that room
But her heart it still burned
With the love for the people
Who stood by the door
But most for the man
Who had went before

And I swear that she saw him
As she closed her eyes
She smiled a bit
Then silently cried
One perfect tear
Rolled down her cheek
She opened her mouth
One last thing left to speak
“Before the Lord takes me
I’ve one last request
Listen here kids
The heart still beats in my chest”

She said
I must be the luckiest girl in the world
Cause I ain't never seen a more beautiful boy
He stands by me when I’m feeling low
Take good care of yourselves, I have to go
