On the day that I saw you,
I didn't think much.
You were just another person,
To bring pain with each touch.

But then you cared,
You stopped the pain,
With the comfort you shared.

Guess not all people are bad,
You're all the proof I need.
You were there when I was sad,
Brought me joy and laughter;
Cared for and loved me.

I had acted like I couldn't feel,
The emotions that you caused.
The mask I wore looked so real,
But you saw through my lie.

Each summer day grows hotter,
But you'll stay cold as ice.
The kindness that you showed me,
It never had a price.

Rain pours from the evening sky,
Cold and wet, I don't care.
I never got to say goodbye.

They say there was a car wreck,
The other driver had been drinking.
The collision snapped your neck,
Like a twig beneath my foot.

Why did you have to leave?
Why did you have to die?

This isn't how you play the game!
Don't leave me all alone again,
I just can't bear the pain.

Come back and hold me,
Wipe away my tears.
Whisper, "It'll be alright,"
Then stay a few more years.

I sat on the tallest building in the city,
Watched as the sun came up.
Like you the colors are so pretty.

I stood up and prepared to jump,
To hit the ground so hard,
My remains would fit in a cup.

Why did you have to leave?
Why did you have to die?
Don't leave me all alone again,
Come hold me while I cry.

Come back and hold me,
Wipe away my tears.
Whisper, "It'll be alright,"
Then stay a few more years.

I remember why you left,
We had had a fight.
I screamed and yelled,
Cursed with all my might.

You had been afraid,
Had run out the front door crying.
To stop that moment, there's not a thing I wouldn't trade.

No one pulled you over for speeding,
As you raced away on your motorcycle.

I got a call the next day,
The police had found you dead.
They covered you with a white sheet and put you on a tray.
The other driver should have died.

They say you felt no pain,
That you had died on impact.
But our argument had been in vain,
And that's all I will remember.

The last thing that I said,
Was the worst mistake of my life.
Said I hated you, Wished we'd never shared a bed.
And now we won't.

Why did you have to leave?
Why didn't you stay and fight back?
YOU PROMISED ME YOU'D NEVER LEAVE!

Why did you have to die?
Now who will hold me when I cry?

Come back and hold me,
Wipe away my tears.
Whisper, "It'll be alright,"
Then stay a few more years.

I closed my eyes and jumped,
Because I can't live without you.
I fell and fell until I stopped,
Hit the ground and turned to goo.

Because you WON'T come back and hold me,
You CAN'T wipe away my tears.
You'll never whisper to me again,
And you can't stay for a few more years.

Why did I have to let you leave?
Why did I let you die?

The fault is mine,
I am to blame.
I'm happy that it is my time,
To leave this place forever more.

In heaven you will hold me,
You'll wipe away my tears.
You'll whisper, "It'll be alright,
Say 'goodbye' to all your fears."
