lyrics

I was sitting by your side in the hospital seat when his big black shoes came up to me and I saw that look in your eyes. I was lost for words. I was halfway stirred. You were on my mind. You were slipping time, on my way in between what you think and what I'm feeling.

But still I can hear your voice ringing in my head. And I won't give up now -- not for anything.

I was halfway gone. You were living song, getting worse, even worse, such a curse dying every day in every way. In a poet's verse, in a dead man's hearse, I will sing your song, I will write it down -- every word, every note, every sound as long as I live.

But still I can hear your voice ringing in my head. And I won't give up now -- not for anything, oh no I won't.

This sickness has taken your mind. You're lost to me now and yet I can't give up, can't give in -- don't know how. My love for you lives while the rest of you dies. This contrasting is sick and it's poisoned my mind.

In a room down the hall where your spirit has gone, there you lie all alone in a colorless world. Though I'm by your side, you feel nothing at all. And as time still moves on no improvement is shown. And the song that I wrote was one you'll never know: you're beautiful smile combined with a colorful tone.

But still I can hear your voice pounding in my head, repeating with a force every word you said to me.

How can this be fair, what is happening here? What has happened to you and this hell you've been through? I swear just one more day and alright and ok. I'll be here for you please don't die on me now.

And while I know that you can't stay, the sweetest thoughts in me remain: a ghost of you in my heart. And when I dream of you at night and reflect on the best of times -- just a touch and you're gone.

This sickness has taken your mind, you're lost to me now. And yet I can't give up can't give in -- don't know how. My love for you lives while the rest of you dies. This contrasting is sick and it's poisoned my mind.

How can this be fair, what is happening here? What has happened to you and this hell you've been through? I swear just one more day and alright and ok. I'll be here for you please don't die on me now.
