Headstones – Three Angels

Three angels settin’ a table for me tonight
They know my face, they set a place
And it's for me tonight
Well I can't disappoint 'em, I guess I'll join 'em
They been waiting on me forever
And I been down, on Earth and in this town
And I swear there's gotta be something better

New suit, and a new tie
A real nice service for me when I die
New suit, new cufflinks and a new tie
A real nice service for me when I die

Well that's the thing about livin’
When ya get there, you're seldom forgiven
And all your best friends are people that you just met
You can take 'em or leave 'em
Well they're sitting in this barroom
And I guess that beats the hell outta loneliness
Sweet loneliness, sweet loneliness

They say ya gave it, gave it all away
Well you got nothing, nothin’ left to trade
I hear you sayin’ I gave it all away
You’ve got nothin’, nothin’ left to trade

We're the type, we live and learn
Scatter my ashes then you smash the urn
Into a room with 25 doors that you can open
And each time you open one
The other 24 they're explodin’, explodin’

That's the thing about livin’
When you get there you take what you're given
And all your best friends are people that you just met
You can take 'em or you leave 'em
They're sitting in this barroom
But I guess that beats the hell out of loneliness
Sweet loneliness, sweet loneliness, sweet
New suit, new tie, a real nice service for me when I die
