“Keep Me In Your Heart” – performed by Warren Zevon

Shadows are fallin’ and I’m runnin’ out of breath
Keep me in your heart for a while
If I leave you it doesn’t mean I love you any less
Keep me in your heart for a while

When you get up in the mornin’ and you see that crazy sun
Keep me in your heart for a while
There’s a train leavin’ nightly called “When All is Said and Done”
Keep me in your heart for a while

Sha-lalala-lala-li-lalala-lo
Keep me in your heart for a while
Sha-lalala-lala-li-lalala-lo
Keep me in your heart for a while

Sometimes when you’re doin’ simple things around the house
Maybe you’ll think of me and smile
You know I’m tied to you like the buttons on your blouse
Keep me in your heart for a while

Hold me in your thoughts
Take me to your dreams
Touch me as I fall into view
When the winter comes
Keep the fires lit
And I will be right next to you

Engine driver’s headed north up to Pleasant Stream
Keep me in your heart for a while
These wheels keep turnin’ but they’re runnin’ out of steam
Keep me in your heart for a while

Sha-lalala-lala-li-lalala-lo
Keep me in your heart for a while
Sha-lalala-lala-li-lalala-lo
Keep me in your heart for a while

Keep me in your heart for a while

The song “Keep Me In Your Heart” was performed by Warren Zevon. He also wrote the piece together with Jorge Calderon. It will be a perfect song to play for a memorial service or during the funeral too.

The lyrics of the song can also be a source of inspiration for those who are still learning how to write eulogy. This is because reading the lines of the song is like finding out what your deceased loved one would want to say to you.

The song tells the listeners that deceased families and friends would still want to be remembered even if they have died. If you go through the lines, you will see that there is a sense of longing not just on the part of the people who have lost someone but also on the side of the one who departed.

A few lines that you can find from the song say, “Hold me in your thoughts, Take me to your dreams”, and these lines just tell the grieving family that these methods can help them get over the loss and eventually accept the fact that their loved one has died.

Accepting the death does not mean completely forgetting your departed loved one. This this is exactly what the song is all about. There are more songs that you can play during the funeral service. You can search them at www.songmeanings.net.
