Linger

If I die tomorrow
Will there be much sorrow
Will there be much horror
If I die tomorrow

Shall I give everything away
If not tomorrow, then today?
Down by the courtyard
It?s death I await

If I die today
Will there be much play
Will anybody pray
If I die today

Shall I give everything away
If not tomorrow, then today?
Whatever the weather
It?s death I await

If I have died before
I will wait at Heaven?s door
I will wait and more
If I have died before

Shall I give everything away
If not tomorrow, then today?
On a grey dull day
It's death I await

If I have died at all
I will wait upon your call
I will not rise or fall
If I have died at all

Shall I give everything away
If not tomorrow, then today?
That last linger
It's death I await
