Lyrics

Wore this dress
To your funeral
On a sunny day like this
It didn't seem
That unusual
An occasion you just missed
Like it was all some big mistake
Some frightening dream from which we'd wake
Wore this dress
To your funeral
On a sunny day like this

When you were just
A little boy
I used to watch you run
Round and round
In the sprinklers
Underneath the same old sun
Couldn't catch you if I tried
Had no wings but you could fly
When you were just
A little boy
I used to watch you run

Hadn't seen you
In a few years
You were grown and so was I
I was living in the city
You were back home in LI
And we all grew apart it's true
Like summer friends so often do
Hadn't seen you
In a few years
You were grown and so was I

This world – it spins so fast
It's easy to fall down
To be lured in private moments
When nobody's around
Into thinking you don't matter
Into feeling overcome
What's one more man
Below the ground
We just step on everyone

Wish I knew you
As a young man
Would've found our way anew
Would've done
What I can
Would it be enough for you?
You can't hold on to someone
Who doesn't feel the summer sun
Wore this dress
To your funeral
On a sunny day like this
Wore this dress
To your funeral
On a sunny day like this
Wore this dress
To your funeral
On a sunny day like this
