We're alive and well my dear.
Though we were kicking and screaming,
Don't you dare leave us here like this.
But I guess this, this is all that there is.
Looking up at the sky, wondering just how high
In the Sweet By and By, darlin' you live on.
Long after you're gone.
It's a long lonely life, without you by my side.
So, I'll see you in the sweet by and by
With each breath we carry on each time.
I've got something to tell you, oh it's the best news.
But each day another mark away from you.
With my feet on the ground, I feel the earth moving 'round.
I am standing on the ledge my dear,
Throwing my prayers, out into the air.
Can you hear them now?
Now that I found out.
I never wanted to know, how to let you go.
