Kara, you gave your life for Al and me; I only wish I could do the same. . .

She walked away like yesterday was the last time
She smiled at me like there was no death after life
She hugged me tight and closed her eyes
She kissed me on the lips before saying goodnight
She must've known cause she was right

I honestly believed I'd wake up to her touch
I truly thought it'd still be us
But she's gone, gone, gone
Just like he promised she'd be all along

I need her back like the ocean needs its waves
I need to be with her, see her face
I need to hold her hand and promise her again
I'll never leave and that's the end

I can't move on like they tell me to
I need her back and that's the truth
She's my air and I can't breathe
I need her here to be with me

If I could erase what lies were said
I promise you I'd do it all again

I honestly believed she'd be there when I opened up my eyes
Another cruel trick covered with the lies
She's forever gone from my life
Why'd she have to take my place and die?

She stroked my cheek and whispered in my ear,
"Forever is a long time, which lasts beyond our many years...
But darling, I love you, so wipe away your tears...
And forever, I promise, I'll always be here...

And never doubt my love for you because I will never leave
I will always be with you, though my image you can't see...
I may not be around through every moment of the day...
But in your heart, I am, and forever I will stay..

For your journey may be long and hard, but I swear my loyalty to you
Every day when you wake up, know that my words reign true...
Sweetheart, believe me, I'll never truly be gone...
This is the way it will be- it has been all along..."

But her face I cannot see, her eyes have faded through the nights
I cannot feel her presence anymore, though her voice I hear just fine
It comforts me like a ghost holding me real tight,
Never letting it go, because that's my lullaby

She walked away like yesterday was the last time
She smiled at me like there was no death after life
She hugged me tight and closed her eyes
She kissed me on the lips before saying goodnight
She must've known because she was right

That was the last time I got to hold her close
That was the finale to a story untold
I remember the things we did and said
But she's forever gone, laid to eternal rest

My dear, sweet love that left me so soon,
I need her back with me, my words are more than true
Because every breath without her is more pained than the last
And every haunting memory reminds me of the past
