Inscription on a tombstone

lyrics

The shadows are long. The sand's almost gone. Each breeze is the second to the last. These words that they speak mean nothing to me when all that I want is to hold your hand.

But oh, when they ask, "Who was this man?" Say I was wrong more than right and tell them with pride that God watched one helluva try.

I wasted those years a slave to my fears convinced the truth was just ahead. But then I made up my mind to stop asking why and that's when I finally learned how to live.

And oh, when they ask, "Who was this man?" Say I was wrong more than right and tell them with pride that God watched one helluva try.
