    I didn't even know the man
    I didn't know the man himself
    Even though his music filled my life
    As it has so many others

    I knew that he had died that week
    After fighting death a year or more
    But I had had a rule before
    That funerals were a waste of flowers

    But something said I had to go
    To be a witness to his gift of love
    A man who never once gave up on life
    Until death took him in his tracks

    The people stood around the church
    Ten thousand people there they say, or more
    Black and white, rich and poor
    Together they were there to say farewell

    In New York City it had rained that day
    The streets were silver and the sky was grey
    But in the church the music soared and sang
    And seemed to fill the air with shining sun

    The man was a hero
    He played the music of our souls
    He knew that we all have in us
    A place where beauty always grows

    Outside in the streets again
    The people wandered through the falling rain
    They waved their hands and dried their tears
    And turned to go about their lives again

    But none of us will be the same
    If we hear the things his music says
    That loving is the gift of life
    And making music was his way of love

    The man was a hero
    He played the music of our souls
    He knew that we all have in us
    A place where beauty always grows
