    Lyrics

    Everyone agrees it came too soon
    It was only meant to be an interception
    You kept fear of death in the back pocket of your jeans
    In the palm of your hand, affection

    It came like a sudden gust of wind
    Leaving them bewildered to ask how
    I recall last time we met, you said we'd meet again
    The irony is only bitter now

    These days everyone cries, "say uncle"
    They want to touch your spirit lest it die
    For this your sons and widow gather with us at the table
    To form a healing circle for our new demise
    These days everyone cries, "say uncle"
    I retrieve the memories quickly as I can
    Add them to the portrait we all draw in our minds
    Your body gone, we shall keep the man

    I close my eyes and hope they do not fade
    These remnants of a voice and a smile
    Images of landscape, cloaked in forest green
    Like your life unfolding mile by mile
    A fierce embrace, a word of thanks
    A cheerful whistle, and hours in a van
    Somehow these pieces must bring back the man you were
    Though the ocean claims your ashes on the sand

    These days everyone cries, "Say uncle"
    They want to touch your spirit lest it die
    For this your sons and widow gather with us at the table
    To form a healing circle for our new demise
    These days everyone cries, "say uncle"
    I retrieve the memories quickly as I can
    Add them to the portrait we all draw in our minds
    Your body gone, we shall keep the man
    [repeat]
