Looking back at the beginning of this
And how life was
Just you and me and love and all of our friends
Living life like an ocean

Now the currents slowly pulling me down
It's getting harder to breath
It won't be too long and I'll be going under
Can you save me from this

It's not my time,
I'm not going
There's a fear in me
It's not showing
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
Oh, I won't go

I look ahead to all the plans that we made
And the dreams that we had
I'm in a world that tries to take them away
Oh, but I'm taking them back
All this time I've just been to blind to understand
What should matter to me
My friend, this life we live
Is not what we have, it's what we believe

It's not my time
I'm not going
There's a fear in me
It's not showing
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
Oh, It's not my time
I'm not going
There's a fear in me
Now I know that
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
Oh, I won't go
I won't go

It might be more than you believe
It might be something you can't see

It's not my time
I'm not going
There's a fear in me
It's not showing
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
It's not my time
I'm not going
There's a will in me
Now it's gonna show
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
I won't go

There might be more than you believe
There might be more than you can see

It's not my time
I'm not going
There's a fear in me
It's not showing
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
It's not my time
I'm not going
There's a will in me
Now I know it
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
I won't go



I won't go!
No I wooooon't gooooo down!

    I have a couple. I have a friend that i have known for 32 yrs, and is dying of cancer, and i truly believe thids is a asong for him! He's a strong person, with a strong will, and a heart of gold. I also have a gfrandson, that i feel is strong too, he comes to my house every-other week, and he has to be strong to stay in the home he is at when he leaves my house, but right now i htink heis too youing to understand, but he is strong willed as well, because he was taken out of my home for a year, and when he got to come back for the first time in a year, he still remebered his old room. because thta was the first place he went too!!! I think he stayed strong for me and his daddy!! Tose us again ment the world to him, and i don't feel he gave up!! And i thank god they are both in my life!!!
