Fine State Of Affairs

Isabel and Jared, each on their own
Both of them carried on all alone
Searching the big, wide world
For one who cares
We got lonely boys and lonely girls
What a fine state of affairs

Isabel and Jared, young and in love
So they got married, never thinking of
Sweet smiles that turn to tears
Taking unawares
Two kids reeling in the years
What a fine state of affairs

From ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Love comes and goes away
And the broken hearts are the only parts
That are here to stay

At ninety-two old Jared peacefully died
Isabel was buried right by his side
Nothing could sever
True love they shared
Now they're together forever
What a fine state of affairs
