In just a matter of milliseconds
i watched the world pass me by,
everything became a lost cause,
and i cried, i was terrified.
the things that never made sense,
became perfectly clear to me that day.
everything that i had wanted,
suddenly seemed miles away.
the hands i felt in mine, were gone.
i let them slip away.
the notes of your voice replayed in my brain,
and i remember the words you say.
"when im gone, ill write you letters.
when youre lost, ill draw you signs,
so you can find a home to return to;
warm arms wide open for you, that are only mine.
when youre sad, ill sing you songs,
or when you need a lullaby,
ill serenade you all night long,
when im gone, i love you, dear misses so and so."
i count the hours from dusk to dawn,
the minutes pass like years.
but still inside, i hear your voice,
and i lose all my doubts and fears.
i walk the lines, i walk the back roads,
with memories, i cant forget.
ive got just one chance to live.
ill live this life with no regrets.
i hear your whispers in the dark,
"dont look down, down look back."
it gets much harder, remembering,
"look right next to you, thats where im at."
youre really gone, and there are no letters.
i am lost, there are no signs.
but still i know, that deep inside,
your arms are always mine.
now i sleep in total silence,
and i cant sleep or shut my eyes,
and every time that i lay down,
i look up at you in the sky.
and i whisper, "i love you, dear mister so and so."
