Lyrics
If I die before I get it done, will you decide?
Take my words and turn them into signs 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 skies
You are love, you are the love supreme, you are the rise
And when you hear this, you’ll 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 tide
Katari cried the day her lover died, she recognized
Because he gave her a life of real love, it’s no surprise

The nights are long but the years are short when you’re alive
Way back when would never be again, it was a time
It’s gonna catch you, so glad I met you to walk the 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 son will rise

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
