Roll the Bones

1) A friend comes to the edge of the dark

She’s prepared to die though she wants so much to live

She stands up tall and holds on to the spark

That may be the last and best thing she can give



Roll the bones ‘cause that’s how life is

Roll the bones just to see what they say

Roll the bones, so much is hidden

Nobody knows the way



Eyes open, awake in the shadows

Hearts open to carry the light

With courage to laugh and the courage to cry

And arms to hold us through the night

Roll the bones (3x)


2) She put her house in order and told her kids

With those close to her heart she had to cry

We talked about all the hard things she did

The hardest was to have to say goodbye
