Lay me down on a bed of roses,
For my heart has ceased to beat.
My mind shall no longer wander to and fro,
For I must go to my eternal sleep.
If I succeeded in anything,
Then praise the Heavens above.
For I was just a mortal man,
In search of his true love.
If I triumphed and barriers overcame,
Then speak of me with pride;
For I was just another name.
Another one who died and
If I managed to affect your heart;
In the years you had known me.
Then cry for me as I depart,
But never weep because without me you are lonely.
For I am with you, always my friend
So say see you later, not goodbye at the end.
For it is only a matter of time;
Before we meet again
And then once again you shall have me.
So fight your way through all the pain.
Escape from mourning and live life free;
For every night a hero must fall
And tonight my love, I was chosen to be.
Taken to a higher plateau, way above this world;
To rest in peace, alongside God.
In Heaven I shall wait for you
And once again we shall be reunited.
For love conquers any distance,
That life and death may hold between us.
