lyrics

The small dash between the numbers
On the grave stone
The small dash between the numbers
On the gravestone ...that's you
You were building, always building
For somebody else's dream
You were working, always working
For something you'll never see

Come away, come away
Come away, come away

There's a bandstand in a garden
Where the music used to play
They were dancing, they were singing
They were playing lovers games
They were living in the moment
Couldn't feel time pass away
Only spiders and weeds
See all that now remain

Come away, come away
Come away, come away
Pour out your life
Give up your self
Take up the cross and walk
Pour out your life
Give up your self
Take up your cross and walk

Don't waste your life
Don't waste your life
Don't waste your life
Wast your life
Lose your life
Lose your life
Lose your life
To gain your life.

Lost on the breeze
Like the grass and it's seed
Are the memories of fallen men
Kings in their graves
Are the same as their slaves
When they're numbered among the dead

The small dash between the numbers
On the gravestone that's you.
