Carry My Body Down
by Nick 13



How long can this journey go on?
Will I find the place I’m meant to go?
Will dreams fall down around us, just like the winter snow?
Another year has come and gone,
Will my luck hold for one year more?
I think of how far that I’ve come and what’s been left behind.

When will they carry my body down?
When will they carry my body down?
Will they take it from the river, after I’ve jumped right in and drowned?
Will they find it on the battlefield, on the spot I stood my ground?

I wander long, I wander far.
Someday I’ll wander no more.
I searched to find what I have lost, and that which I’ve never known.
And when I find that I’m gone, across the river I'll go.
I’ll take only my memories, things that might have been.

When will they carry my body down?
When will they carry my body down?
Will they cut it from a hangman’s noose after the sentence has been down?
Will anyone be there to mourn a villain’s passin’ to the ground?

When will they carry my body down?
When will they carry my body down?
When will they carry my body down?
