“Cheap Trick” – performed by The Flame

Another night slowly closes in and I feel so lonely
Touching heat freezing on my skin
I pretend you still hold me
I’m going crazy I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far
I’m in way too deep over you
I can’t believe you’re gone
You were the first
You’ll be the last

[Chorus]
Wherever you go I’ll be with you
Whatever you want I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember after the fire After all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

Watching shadows move across the wall
Feels so frightening
I want to run to you I want to call
But I’ve been hit by lightning
Just can’t stand up for falling apart
Can’t see through this veil across my heart over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first
You’ll be the last

[Chorus]

I’m going crazy
I’m losing sleep
I’m in way too deep over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first
You’ll be the last

[Chorus]

The song “Cheap Trick” was written by Ira H. Antelis and Brenda Gordon Russell. It was performed and popularized by The Flame. During funeral services and memorials, the songs that should be played must relate to the people attending the event. And this song by The Flame is definitely an appropriate choice since the lyrics talk about what a devastated and depressed person feels when someone dies in the family.

Although this piece is perfect for any person’s death, this will be best played for the loss of a wife, a husband, or a life partner because of the line “You were my first, You’ll be the last”. That line alone can jerk tears from the eyes because it just shows how much love there is between people even if death has already come between them.

The first paragraph of the song talks about the denial stage where you still think that everything is a dream; and that the death of your partner is not reality. But then everything sinks in, and you try to accept the fact that there will no longer be moments that can be shared together.

When someone dies, other people will tell you that you have to be strong and you have to carry on. This song helps people realize that even if you are trying to be strong and you are hopeful that everything is going to be okay, you still can’t easily recover from this type of loss.

This piece of music tells everyone that grieving is normal and you will need time to put yourself back together again. At the end of the day, you remember your partner and you tell him through prayers that he will always be a part of your life even if he’s gone physically.
