I’m not a particularly morbid person but there have been some special people in my life, both family and friends, who have either lived a long life and died or have been taken from us tragically young. This post isn’t for anyone in particular, it’s just a song that I like for both the lyrics and the musical style. It’s called “Eulogy” and it’s by a band called The Flatliners who I saw supporting NOFX back in 2009.

It’s just a great reminder to remember your friends and loved ones, even when they’re gone. Yes, it’s hard to lose someone you care about – whether they’re family or friend. But the very fact you care about them means you’ll also have some great memory that should never be forgotten.

The sun shows no mercy this morning
I’m staring thin-eyed as the rolling ground comes to a halt
A heart once close has stopped beating
But it’s memory lives forever
And our blurry eyes will make some sense of this

You will always be remembered
You will be celebrated
You will never be forgotten
These tears still haven’t faded

I feel I’m awake today with this memory that was once misplaced
And I never thought I’d live to see this overpouring sadness
Our eyes wide, receptive
A family without a faith learns that hands around them will help give direction
And our mourning hearts will skip a beat at every single mention
You will not be forgotten
And we will sing

You will always be remembered
You will be celebrated
You will never be forgotten
These tears still haven’t faded

You’re not lost, you’re not lost
You’re watching over us
You’re not lost, you’re not lost
Oh just listen to these words we’re screaming out
Oh god, it’s gotten so loud now
You’re not lost, you’re not lost

You will never be forgotten
You will never be forgotten
You will always be remembered
You will be celebrated

So, E is for “Eulogy” by The Flatliners.
