WOODS OF YPRES lyrics : "I Was Buried In Mount Pleasant Cemetery"

I was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, alone and unceremoniously
... Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, when life was taken from me


Our tree was full and green, I had to leave it
The sadness was overwhelming,
To be alone beneath it


The sun came down hot and hard, I could never sleep
To disappear was the only way I could find relief


When I was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, alone and un-Sarah-moniously
... Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, when life was taken so suddenly


First I paid my respects to Glenn Gould
Then I visited the grave of Alexander Muir

Next to Eaton's tomb, I hung my head and cried
Looking for Joseph Mulgrew, I gave up and died


When I was buried...

The birds sang, the flowers in bloom, spring had just begun

Recently fitted for a suit, now lying in a box
By summer, I was gone, my remains stolen from the ground
My body never recovered and I was never found

... Until now

I was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, alone and unceremoniously


Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, between the monuments and trees
At the heart of the city, Amongst the statues and fountains

New life could begin, where the old path I ran came to and end

[David Gold Version 1.9, June 19th 1980 - May 11th, 2007 Aged 26]


I was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, alone and unceremoniously
... Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, when life was taken from me
