If I die before I get it done
Will you decide 
Take my words and turn them into sounds 
That will survive  Because a long time ago
I knew not to deprive 

It's safe out there and now you're everywhere 
Just like the sky
And you are love, you are the love supreme 
You are the rise
And when you hear this, you know it's your jam
It's your goodbye 

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
And when the drummer drums
He's gonna play my song
To carry me along 

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
And when the boatman comes 
To ferry me away
To where we all belong 

We all crossed when we were feeling lost
It's just the time
 Kateri cried the day her lover died
She recognized  Because you gave her a life of real love
It's no surprise 

The night's are long, but the years are short 
When you're alive 
Way back when we'll never be again 
It was a time
It's gonna catch you so glad I met you
To walk a line

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
And when the drummer drums
He's gonna play my song
To carry me along 

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
And when the boatman comes 
To ferry me away
To where we all belong 

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
And when the drummer drums
He's gonna play my song
To carry me along 

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
And when the boatman comes 
To ferry me away
To where we all belong 

Let me live so when it's time to die
Even the reaper cries
Let me die so when it's time to live
 Another sun will rise

I said yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
I said yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
And when the drummer drums
He's gonna play my song
To carry me along 

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
And when the boatman comes 
To ferry me away
To where we all belong 

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone
