lyrics

I went to a funeral for a man I did not know
I went to a funeral for a man I didn't know was dead

Faded bride, full of wine uncasked
Tells me your story unbidden and unasked
I come uninvited, my life just begun
To drink to a man who's thread's been unseen

I went to a funeral for a man I did not know
I went to a funeral for a man I didn't know was dead

Holding court at the center of it all,
Your friends and your lovers all remembered your fall
You rise up, for one night, forgiven of your sins
And your child lies sleeping as the rumpus begins

I went to a funeral for a man I did not know
I went to a funeral for a man I didn't know was dead

Midnight comes,
A gentleman's toast to a man unknown
When the noise breaks the walls, we break out and away
To the moon and the river that carries us away
I went to a funeral for a man I did not know
I went to a funeral for a man I didn't know was dead
