In the delightfully macabre world of Grim Fandango, death is simply a part of everyday… well, life! One’s journey through the afterlife is filled with petty office politics, irritable officials, and the every present need for just a little more money. But just as the more mundane parts of life are still around, so are the best aspects, like friendship, celebration, and love. This song is about that last bit.


Love beyond life, my sweet,
Love beyond life, my sweet,
I give you love that lasts through this life and the next,
Love from beyond the grave,
Love from an autosave,
Passion that seeps from every tombstone's chiseled text!

In every path you chose,
that's how the ending goes,
I cannot wait to lay my flowers by your bed,
Love beyond life has charms,
Caught in the reapers arms,
And he'll be there until the day that you are wed

Not even death can stop my song for the one I adore,
You've had the love of your life, but now there's so much more!

So if you care, my sweet,
To take my dare, my sweet,
Just pay your fare, and soon you'll be swooning toward a dreamless sleep.
Let's have a holiday,
We'll dance the macabre,
Come to my arms and find the sweet embrace of me!
