lyrics

He's holding on just to watch her go. He said he'd never leave her alone. Fighting his last fight then he'll fight no more. and succumb to the sickness in his bones.

It's a fearful thing to love what death can touch. You can give it all but you can never give enough. When the lights go out and darkness surrounds just know that you won't be alone for long.

Where did you come from where did you go? I can see your body but I can't find your soul. I've read all the books but I'm still finding that I don't know. Where did you go?

It's a fearful thing to love what death can touch. You can give it all but you can never give enough. When the lights go out and darkness surrounds just know that you won't be alone for long.

She's saying prayers for the child on the way the doctors said all they can do is wait. She can't feel the beat, but she can hear somebody say, "It's time to go" before he ever had a chance to stay.

It's a fearful thing to love what death can touch. You can give it all but you can never give enough. When the lights go out and darkness surrounds just know that you won't be alone for long.

Just a moment in a story just a note in an infinite song
Just a fragment of the glory that has been here all along
When is the time? When does it draw near?
When will we see perfect love that drives away our fear?

It's a fearful thing to love what death can touch. You can give it all but you can never give enough. When the lights go out and darkness surrounds just know that you won't be alone for long.
