dead man       dear dead more than one      dear dead bouquet

my own death in all your faces      dear gone away

the radio scribbles out the silence      silence erases the sound   no answer is an answer


what do I want to say to you now that your time and my chance are past

no matter      this page will be you      will do

dear ear wish you were here

this circle is want

mama papa gone away      come again another day

want      only the sound of the wind
