WNL-XLIX: "Everybody wants to go on laughing when everything says it might be time to cry"


It's a cool, warm morning on a January day
And for the first time, I've got nothing to say
So I slowly eat my breakfast as they talk about the game
And I pray you might have spoken my name


And everybody wants to go on laughing
when everything says it might be time to cry
But I feel alive, see it in my eyes -- the saddest eyes you've ever seen
And I can't let go of someone I need to know -- it's not time for you to go
So don't leave me, Maureen

When the sun woke this morning and gently touched my face
For a moment, I didn't recognize this place
So I looked inside the mirror and who'd you think I'd see
The very best parts of you staring at me

And everybody wants to go on laughing
when everything says it might be time to cry
But I feel alive, see it in my eyes -- the saddest eyes you've ever seen
And I can't let go of someone I need to know -- it's not time for you to go
So don't leave me, Maureen

Spoken: Well about two weeks later, she died. And in the midst of
all the sadness and heartache, I was glad about one thing. I was glad that
I'd taken the time to tell my parents just much I love them, whenever I could.
You see, the people in your life -- the people in your life that you love...
Well, you've gotta let them know how you feel. 'Cause one day, that opportunity
-- it's going to be gone.

And everybody wants to go on living
when everything says it might be time to die
But I feel alive, seeing inside my eyes -- the saddest eyes you've ever seen
And I won't let go of someone I need to know -- it's not time for you to go
So don't leave me...
Don't leave me...
Don't leave me...
Maureen
