"There's no drinking after your dead"

Terni, centro commerciale Il Tulipano - Listening the Modfather

 

Come taste the wine

Come lose yourself

Taste this time

But keep it well -

Only love it all

With heart and head

For there is no drinking,

After your dead.

 

Dive and swim

In the amber ocean

See all that you can

In this new emotion -

And embrace it now

Before it's skin sheds

For there is no drinking,

After your dead.

 

Stand back to back

With yourself again

As your spin and reel

Like a new found friend,-

And have it all

With heart and hands-

For there is no love making,

After your dead.

 

And today is but a second

If tomorrow you may die

And empty pages glistening

In eternity's lie

And time is buy an essensce

Encased upon the wall

That brings our day of reckoning-

Much closer to us all.

 

Light the candle

And burn it well

For only time knows

What it cannot yet tell,

Only love it all

With heart and head

For there is no drinking,

After your dead.

 

("There's no drinking after your dead"/Paul Weller)
