about

In Lieu Of Flowers ...(For Henry)'

(...written in disbelief for a fallen student/friend and those, like myself, who love him and his family.)

lyrics

‘In lieu of flowers’…
Please bring mercy
Failing mercy
Bring some love

In lieu of hatred…
Born of vengeance
Please bring light
Let it rein from above

There aint no making sense of this
Not with any words I know
But I’ll remember innocence
And try to love better in its glow

‘The family requests…
Please don’t wear black’
Yeah, please don’t wear black
There’s enough darkness around

In lieu of mourning…
Hold your children warmly
Hold one of them for me
I got no kids of my own
Yeah, but I’ll remember Henry
…and the big guitar

And no
There aint no making sense of this
Not with any words I know
But I’ll remember innocence
And try to love better in its glow

So In lieu of flowers..
Please bring mercy
Failing mercy
Bring some love
