I heard the first line in a dream and remembered it the next day, the rest just followed on.


why?

WHY?

There'll be a shadow in the churchyard
When the moon begins to shine
And the longest and the darkest
of the shadows will be mine.
And I will search each earthy mound
Until the one I seek is found
Then, if and when I find that spot
The one that others soon forgot
Oh I will shout, with anguish cry
To God, ask why you had to die
And curse the fact, because you see
The one who should have done was me.
