trivia

The song is about a dead man in a graveyard, buried at the side of his love. He sings about how he would die for her although he is already dead.

Mario wanted to record it some night in a graveyard. That gave him the idea of playing an intimate concert for the dead people. Nobody agreed with him.

It's the only studio recording where Yusep plays an instrument.

lyrics

Friends again in the rain
Song in the cemetery

I miss you so much I would die for you

And the winter is cool
But now I don’t know if it’s true

I love you so much I would die for you

And your sister is rude
But now I don’t know if it’s true
I need you so much

Cemetery son
It’s what you got
Many hungry lonely people are
Dying alone
