lyrics

Oh in the final stages of life
They arrive
At the nursing home
Visits are few and far between
At the last of stops

She listens to stories of
Of happy lives
And of some heartbreaking too

Oh Lona
You work at the nursing home
Caring for the folks who
Spend their last days alone
Some are lost
They sit beside the window
Observing busy people
Remembering days long gone

She said I used to walk past that place
So many times
And catch a glimpse of the face
Of my own grandfather
I felt such guilt
Yes I felt such shame

That I always
Came with an excuse
Something about a career
The whole time he was admitted there
Today I work here
Now that he's gone
I guess this must be my way
Of trying to make up

It's my way my way
