After the Funeral
Lyrics by David Cameron Anderson, Davecamson Music ASCAP
Music by Steven Landau

There's a long strip of land reaches into the sea
At the tip of the land sits a house and sits me
On a porch that's suspended precariously
For the water's laid claim to the land under me.

I've forgotten to wonder of what's over there
Just one piece of this house of this porch of this chair
I am heavy of heart and I've anger to spare
And it's all I can do to see sky and breathe air

I will make fewer promises, not so easily lie
Still wish, still want, be afraid at goodbye.

I can faintly hear lapping of water below
Through the mid-winter ice and a fresh dust of snow
It says,'Come, I will bear you.' deceptively though
For the ice it is torn where the night-time ships go.

I will make fewer promises, not so easily lie
Still wish, still want. Be afraid at goodbye.

There's a long strip of land reaches into the sea
At the tip of the land sits a house and sits me
On a porch that's suspended precariously
For the water's laid claim to the land under me.
