lyrics

You were such a doer,
You were always on the go,
But you never went to surf school,
‘Cause you broke your collarbone,
Yet your pure determination,
And the fire in your soul,
Brings eternal inspiration for us all.

CHORUS

Edward Dee,
I am you,
You are me,
You’re the rain upon my face,
You’re the winner in the race,
Edward Dee,
You were young,
You are free,
If there’s anyone to be - it’s Edward.

When you had a packed lunch,
You would sell it all at school,
Making money in the playground,
All the children think you’re cool,
With your strong sense of justice,
And your neck upon the line,
Your free spirit was ahead of its time.

CHORUS

Edward Dee,
I am you,
You are me,
You’re the rain upon my face,
You’re the winner in the race,
Edward Dee,
You were young,
You are free,
If there’s anyone to be - it’s Edward.

You’d always light a fire and watch it burn,
Playing piano but you wouldn’t learn,
You didn’t tolerate fools and you lived for today,
Noisy, Loud, Talk to anyone,
Heart on your sleeve,
Left your mark,
Here for everyone,
Helping us grieve.

CHORUS

Edward Dee,
I am you,
You are me,
You’re the rain upon my face,
You’re the winner in the race,
Edward Dee,
You were young,
You are free,
If there’s anyone to be - it’s Edward.

Edward Dee,
I am you,
You are me,
You’re the rain upon my face,
You’re the winner in the race,
Edward Dee,
You were young,
You are free,
If there’s anyone to be - it’s Edward.
