lyrics

Place my deathbed next to the record shelf
Within reach so I can pick them out myself
I want to hear Piaf and Holiday sing
And they will comfort me through times which are trying

And if I'm able I'll start the turntable
And listen to my records as I'm dying

Place the speakers right next to my ears
It's all I've wanted after all of these years
I want to block out those church bells that ring
It is not them for which I am vying

This will be the final time I put on vinyl
And listen to my records as I'm dying

So let the drummers drum
And let the crooners croon
And they will comfort me
On dreary afternoons
And now that I am here
In the hospice wing
It's what I need to hear as I am lying

I guess this is it now
I'll turn the speakers up loud
And listen to my records as I'm dying

No, I'm not troubled this is just reality
I don't believe in hell or eternity
I'm not concerned with what the afterlife will bring
I hear my neighbors and their families crying

As I prepare to leave
I'll pull out the next sleeve
And listen to my records as I'm dying
