Amen - Kevin Morby

On death and dying, my old friend
Oh I heard a word from your chest
Come out from within
Take me as I come now
Take me as I will
Take me as an angel
My freedom is mine but I'll share

And they said: On death and dying, my old friend
Oh I heard a word from your chest
Come out from within
Any way you want me
Any way at all
Any way you need me, my angel
Oh come just call

And won't you say a prayer for
Won't you say a prayer for me, my friend
I'm not dead, but I'm dyin'
So slow, so slow, so slow

Won't you say a prayer for
Won't you say a prayer for me, amen
I've been cryin' like a siren
In the mirror
So cold, so cold, so cold, so cold

Any way you want me
Any way you want me
Any way at all
Any way you need me
Any way you need me
And they come, they call

Take me as I come now
Take me as I come now
Take me as I will
Take me as an angel
Take me as an angel
Take me as you feel

In the earliest of mornings
A phrase will commonly make itself my way
Gently, like a leaf on top of water, harming no one
And that morning when I opened my eyes, it said accept death
And then it melted away
When I opened them again, it said expect death

Dear God reach down your hands and lift me up

And death she said, always seemed to me as one who got caught
In god's riptide
Quickly, and without realizing you are being pulled out to sea
The laughter from the beach begins to grow faint
As you sink further into it's abyss
And soon there's no one around you
And all that surrounds you is blue

Dear God reach down your hand and lift me up
Amen

Won't you say a prayer for
Won't you say a prayer for me, my friend
I'm not dead, but I'm dyin'
So slow, so slow, so slow
Won't you say a prayer for
Won't you say a prayer for me, amen
I've been cryin' like a siren
In the mirror
So cold, so cold, so cold, so cold
