elton john“Funeral for a Friend” – performed by Elton John

The roses in the window box
Have tilted to one side
Everything about this house
Was born to grow and die

Oh it doesn’t seem a year ago
To this very day
You said I’m sorry honey
If I don’t change the pace
I can’t face another day

And love lies bleeding in my hand
Oh it kills me to think of you with another man
I was playing rock and roll and you were just a fan
But my guitar couldn’t hold you
So I split the band
Love lies bleeding in my hands

I wonder if those changes
Have left a scar on you
Like all the burning hoops of fire
That you and I passed through

You’re a bluebird on a telegraph line
I hope you’re happy now
Well if the wind of change comes down your way girl
You’ll make it back somehow

To help the family members in their grieving process due to the death of a loved one, it will be nice if there are some funeral related songs and poems that can help them get through the pain and the frustration of the situation.

One of the songs that could help them not to worry about some of the funeral and cremation costs is the music of Elton John entitled “Funeral for a Friend”.  The song was written by singer himself together with Bernie Taupin.

This will be a good piece for the funeral of a deceased partner because the song talks about letting go and finding happiness after a very sorrowful moment in life.

If you listen to the song, you will realize that it seems like the departed one renders the lyrics hoping that his partner will be happy even without his presence; that even when his partner would find a new life, he hopes that all the memories and experiences they have shared together will still remain in his mate’s heart regardless of any imperfections of their relationship.
