Grief Rehearsal

Music and Lyric by Dennis Davison

 

I had you crashing just to test my sorrow

Youíre gone today though youíll be here tomorrow

You have died one thousand times

Only in my mind

Grief rehearsal, practicing to be sad

Grief rehearsal, preparing so the shock wonít seem so bad

Believing youíre going before youíre gone

And turning your lights out while youíre still on

I watched you suffer, Ďtil I was distracted

Through repetition, I hardly reacted

I have tried to be immune

To your fatal tune

Grief rehearsal, practicing to be sad

Grief rehearsal, preparing so the shock wonít seem so bad

Believing youíre going before youíre gone

And turning your lights out while youíre still on

Iíll catalogue memories

While youíre still here with me

But Iíll prepare for when you leave

Practicing to grieve

Grief rehearsal
