Music Friday Prompt #5 “If I Ever Leave This World Alive” performed by Flogging Molly

Use this song and lyrics as the basis for a piece of writing.

When I get to the end of my road

When there are no more turns left to take

I hope its you who’s there beside me

To help me stop and shuffle on off.

I want that last little bit of my journey

To be as every other part has been

With you my love, beside me laughin’

As we come to the sign, that says road’s end.

For together we travelled far and wide

Across oceans and through foreign lands

Where the ups have always exceeded the downs

When the dawn has meant, lets start it again.

I want to know your hands in mine

To see me off and on my way

With no regrets for we had the best time

We leave a legacy for others to know.

So whether it was the road or our bench

Shouting directions to turn left and right

Or a centred moment watching the world

You and me, the ducks and the cows.

We’ll leave each other content in it all

We had a ball, we did it right

Love we found and played it out

Explored and implored and then cranked it again.

When I come to the end of my road

And your sitting there gently holding my hand

There’ll be no sorrow, no need for tears

We’ll celebrate we had, each day as we did.
