Lyrics

Close the curtains, cover up those mirrors.
Open the window, let the spirit leave the room.
Light up those candles.
get that kettle boiling,
soon the neighbors will be coming round with prayers.
Take a turn in the scullery,
Making sandwiches and teas.
Reading Rosaries or Mass cards
a story or a song will pull you through.
Let us share some food and drink,
let us celebrate a life.
Takes a lifetime to die,
and no time at all.
The children are crying, as the stories are unfolding.
Laughter and sadness, let the spirit fi ll the room.
Prepare the nights vigil,
recounting those last moments,
Unknown to the city this way we deal with loss.
Let bygones be bygones,
as the candles softly burn.
For 72 long hours,
a story or a song will pull us through.
Let us share some food and drink,
let us celebrate a life.
Takes a lifetime to die,
and no time at all.
Let us share some food and drink,
let us celebrate a life.
Takes a lifetime to die,
and no time at all.
No time, no time at all.
