Ray

Ray (no MP3 available)

Ray died on his eighteenth birthday
Long before I was born
It was a tree that killed him
Not the war
His brother was a war hero
He was just a kid
It wasn’t a plane he crashed
It was just a car

Chorus:
It’s just a day like any other
My goodness it’s hot in June
Does anyone remember
The ones who leave so soon

Aunt Frances, well she went crazy
When I was just a kid
I used to blame her for it
Now I don’t
She didn’t choose the road she took
Anymore than I
Madness soothes the raging beast
Isn’t that the point

Chorus:
It’s just a day like any other
My goodness it’s hot in June
Does anyone remember
The ones who leave so soon

I sat with my father’s father
And watched him suffer twice
I searched for words of comfort
There were none
Everything dear fades away
Sooner than you’d like
Into a cloudy sadness
That covers up the sun

Chorus:
It’s just a day like any other
My goodness it’s hot in June
Does anyone remember
The ones that leave so soon
