Sing Your Name

lyrics

On a hill that overlooks the town
In the still of mourning laid you down
In the days upon your mother's knee
Would she say these words recalled to me?

You go round and round in circles
And you give it all away
But one day if you're lucky boy
Your friends will sing your name

So they came from miles all around
And they gave their hearts up with the sound
And the best of tales were told in kind
That you left with those who stay behind

You go round and round in circles
And you give it all away
But one day if you're lucky boy
Your friends will sing your name

So we'll raise our glasses and our voices in the sun
For there will come a reckoning for each and everyone

So we go into the passing light
And we know the bars won't close tonight

You go round and round in circles
And you give it all away
But one day if you're lucky boy
Your friends will sing your name
Your friends will sing your name
Your friends will sing your name

Now your time is short and quickly gone
But your life is greater than the sum

We go round and round in circles
And we give it all away
But one day with a heart of joy
Yes I will sing your name
Said one day with a heart of joy
Yes I will sing your name
