Everybody’s Leaving
(Frank Meyer BMI Ditty Dat Music)

down on cemetery road
under a purple sky
long tombstone shadows
we stopped to say goodbye

mothers, fathers, sons and daughters
their time etched in stone
reposed for the ages
communion of the bones

broken angels mime
dance upon the ore
knowing not knowing
like that forevermore

everybody’s leaving
no one stays on long
no matter what you believe in
soon we’ll all be gone

somewhere in the darkness
hides a callous thief
to steal love away
and leave only grief

god clouds and devil dust
flying bats and falling stars
owls speak as they do
who do they think they are

down on cemetery road
music of the wind
in silence of forever
a ghost defies the end


everybody’s leaving….
