[Verse 1]
Old friend
It's me and you again
And old boy
As me and you rejoice
Yeah, I can’t help thinkin' 'bout the way we joked
In those funeral homes, yeah, I could only hope it was appropriate

[Refrain]
So make me laugh
As for my last request
If I don’t take it back
Would you ignore my last request?
Oh, would you make me laugh?
As for my last request
Babe, I won't make it back
Yeah, I am sure there's nothing left

[Chorus]
But as a, a reminder
Ready when you find her
I repress the iridescence of a fire
And won't you mind him?
Steady when you find him
I confess the incandescence of a dying light
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Consume me through the night

[Verse 2]
Old man
I'm done always abiding by the plan
And old boy
We knew you really never had a choice
But I can't help thinkin' 'bout the way we loved
I was cancer then, now I can hardly come to terms
Losing her

[Refrain]
So would you make me laugh?
As for my last request
Babe, I won’t make it back
Yeah, I am sure there’s nothing left

[Chorus]
But as a, a reminder
Ready when you find her
I repress the iridescence of a fire
And won't you mind him?
Steady when you find him
I confess the incandescence of a dying light
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Consume me through the night
Oh-oh, oh-oh (Oh)

[Bridge]
If I was the king of the thing, then you could have it all
If you lied and called me your queen, then you could have the dogs
If I was the swingingest thing, then you could have a ball
Show me one more effort, boy, you know that I could make it better
If I was the king of the thing, then you could have it all
If you lied and called me your queen, then you could have the dogs
And if I was the only thing you couldn’t bear to lose
I'd set fire to the wood just so you wouldn't have to bury me too

[Outro]
A reminder
Ready when you find her
I repress the iridescence of a fire
And won't you mind him?
Steady when you find him
I confess the incandescence of a dying light
A reminder
Ready when you find her
I repress the iridescence of a fire
And won’t you mind him?
Steady when you find him
I confess the incandescence of a dying light
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Consume me through the night
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Consume me through the night
