And as you fly straigh up to heaven
On wings of fire into the sky
Our memories will always keep you
Your body's gone, you do not die

And we who gather here to grieve you
Though we may weep to say goodbye
Still will we laugh to talk about you
Your body's gone, you do not die

We carry on with you inside us
In every way you shaped our lives
We'll pass you words and ways to strangers
Your body's gone, you do not die

And as you fly straight up to heaven
On wings of fire into the sky
Our memories will always keep you
Your body's gone, you do not die

Your body's gone, you do not die.

When I first started playing songs a few people said that lots of them sounded like HYMNS. This stuck in my mind and I harboured ideas of writing a PROPER one for ages.

The idea finally came to fruition on the bus back to work after a meeting at Leicester General Hospital, when for some reason I was thinking about cremation services and how there isn't really a Special Song for them like there is with Weddings stuff. So I wrote one - it's meant to be NON-DENOMINATIONAL, and apart from the mention of heaven (which I guess doesn't count, as it means SKY instead) I think it is pretty much non-religious also, which is nice. I ENVISAGED it having CHORAL backing singers and that, but instead it has the Durham Ox singers.

We hardly ever played it, possibly because it would be hard to beat the time we did it upstairs at The Charlotte when me, Tom and Tim played the main song and Mr Fleay walked from the back of the audience to the stage playing his trumpet. It was glorious.

The bird song at the end's lovely too isn't it?
