John C. Reilly: Once again, My Chemical Romance.

My Chemical Romance: (singing)
“Turn away,
If you could get me a drink
Of water cause my lips are chapped and faded
Call my aunt Marie
Help her gather all my things
and bury me
in all my favorite colors,
my sisters and my brothers, still,
I will not kiss you,
cause the hardest part of this,
is leaving you.

Now turn away,
cause I’m awful just to see
cause all my hair’s abandoned all my body,
Oh, my agony,
know that I will never marry,
Baby, I’m just soggy from the chemo
but counting down the days to go.

It just ain’t living
And I just hope you know
That if you say (if you say)
Goodbye today (goodbye today)
I’d ask you to be true (cause I’d ask you to be true)
Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you…

Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you…”
