Song for Richard Manuel

This song is by Head of Femur and appears on the album Hysterical Stars (2005).

The hotel
Where I died
You cut me down, and free I was

Touch me dearly and remember me fair
Now your voice does more than move my weary days

The late-coming tears
I display
Make me believe all the songs you sang

It's the truth I hold
That every man knows
Just one more piano chord
I listen to the song, when I hear it so strong

I falter like a bird
My brother said it shouldn't suffer
Just let it be gone
Let it go, life still goes on and on and on

Past this one
Richard Manuel, will find you (Life still goes on and on and on)
