MISS ME - BUT LET ME GO
When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me. I want no rites in a gloom filled room. Why cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little, but not for long, and not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take, and eac must go alone. It's all a part of the Master's plan, a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know. And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss Me - But let me go!
Starts Without Me
