All I Wanted

Here, I will lay my head down.
I will close my eyes.
I will slip away.
And though I have come to this
I am not afraid.
I will face the way
Of leaving now.

All I wanted was a life to call my own.
All I wanted was a place to call my home.
All I wanted was some meat upon the bone.
But now that’s gone.

And now I am on my way.
I am warm inside.
I am calm and free.
And though you don’t understand,
There is no more pain.
Please don’t cry for me.
I’m leaving now.

All I wanted was a life to call my own.
All I wanted was a place to call my home.
All I wanted was some meat upon the bone.
Now that’s gone.

Friends, when the morning comes,
To the east I’ll be,
Rising to the sun.
I am the air you breathe
And the wind on your skin.
Remember me.
Remember me.

All I wanted was a life to call my own.
All I wanted was a place to call my home.
All I wanted was some meat upon the bone.
Now that’s gone.
Now that’s gone.
