Gord Downie - A Better End Lyrics




We live the proper distance
For treasure or worse
With the cowards in the fine print
We make long visitors
Where God walks with persons
Even the maybe-doomed
You sing it, it's a real song
Even their advice is not to

Please stay 'til the bitter end
I advise you to

Where God walks with persons
There's a candle of them
But when you sing it, it's a real song
When you sing to each his own man

Stay 'til the bitter end
I advise you to
Even though they make their move before then
We won't make our move before them

We work the proper distance
For treasure or worse
Where all the old hatreds
Can make us long visitors
Where God walks with persons
Even the maybe-doomed
But when you sing it, it's a real song
So my advice is that you

Stay 'til the bitter end
I'd advise you to
Even though they made their move before then
Let's stay 'til the better end
Yeah, we'll stay 'til the better end
We will stay

    I listen to this, bawling my eyes out, tears falling into
    the dishwater......... RIP, Gord. I'll NEVER forget you for inviting me
    specially to your first ever worldwide podcast of Coke Machine Glow, after you
    read my review of your book of poems by the same title. It was the first live
    music podcast on the Internet, I was front row center, you in the spotlight,
    and a spotlight still shines on that memory of mine. Baa maa pii, see  you down the road..........Much love <3

    Amazing. He truly had a gift. He had a voice and he used it well now it is our turn to actually hear his many messages and stand up for the right things even when it seems impossible. He could when he was ill. No excuses just love for the right things!

  8. Joel Cook

    I can feel my heart weep, A beautiful way to bid farewell to a familiar face and the voice that will keep you here.
