Suggested by celebrant Georgina Pugh:

 

When the blood dries in my veins and my
Heart feels no more pain
I know, I’ll be on my way,
To heavens door,

I know when I’m not,
i’ll be hoping i don’t drop,
To a place where I will rise, like before,

I know when I’m not,
i’ll be hoping i don’t drop,
To a place where I will rise, like before,

I can feel, something happening
that I’ve never felt before
Hopeless dreaming will start,
Dragging me away from heavens door

I can feel, something happening
that I’ve never felt before
Hopeless dreaming will start,
Dragging me away from heavens door

When my mind stops thinking,
My eyes stop blinking,
I hope
Somebodys there.

And my heart stops beating
and my lungs stop breathing
in air,
I hope somebody cares,

When the blood dries in my veins and my
Heart feels no more pain
I know, I’ll be on my way,
To heavens door,

I know when I’m not,
i’ll be hoping i don’t drop,
To a place where I will rise, like before,

I know when I’m not,
i’ll be hoping i don’t drop,
To a place where I will rise, like before,

I can feel, something happening
that I’ve never felt before
Hopeless dreams will start,
Dragging me away from heavens door

When my mind stops thinking,
My eyes stop blinking,
I hope
Somebodys there.

And my heart stops beating
and my lungs stop breathing
in air,
I hope somebody cares,

When my mind stops thinking
My eyes stop blinking
I know
At the end.

 

Here’s an alternative version. Georgina says, ‘Lovely Ed Harvey is a final year student who recorded a cover of this song and posted it on YouTube. He kindly gave me permission to use it for a funeral where this song had been requested … In the end we went with the original, but it was good to have this as another option.’
