Breathe in softly, take my hand
We're saying goodbye but this is not the end
Your body's sinking, oh my soul
I'll see you on the other side when it is my turn

The sky will open up
I've waited long to feel your touch (feel your touch)
So meet me at the gates
And wash these tears away (away...)
Wash these tears away

On this morning the music ends
I'm down on my knees by your hospital bed
So how can I live when I'm watching you die?
I'll see you on the other side when it is my turn

The sky will open up
I've waited long to feel your touch (feel your touch)
So meet me at the gates
And wash these tears away (away...)
Wash these tears away

Every breath I take's like I can't escape
And I'm too afraid of letting go of you

I found the secret
To wash away
All this sadness
I found the secret
To wash away
To wash away...

Every breath I take's like I can't escape
And I'm too afraid of letting go of you
So meet me at the gates
Every breath I take's like I can't escape
And I'm too afraid of letting go of you
So meet me at the gates

Wash these tears away
Wash these tears away
Wash these tears away
Wash these tears away
Wash these tears away

I found the secret
To wash away
All this sadness
I found the secret
To wash away
All this sadness
I found the secret
To wash away
All this sadness
I found the secret
To wash away
All this sadness

Sadness... Sadness...

    This song doesn't really mean anything to me its more of what this person really means to me every time when i hear this song i think of a world without her it doesn't change any ones world just mine.. It would be the end of my world nothing can survive when or if she dies... But many don't know her or what she stands for but i tell her that she is not standing alone i'm always here for you...

    I heard that this song is about beau's grandparents that passed away within a month of each other. And he was really close with them.

    I heard this song for the first time today and it already means a lot to me. It reminds me of my grandpa a lot. He was my best friend and watching him take his last breath was by far the hardest thing i had to do. This song is very relate-able. Love you grandpa. Can't wait to meet up with you again.

    Whenever i hear this song i start crying because it reminds me of my grandfather. When i went to his funeral i remember thinking that it'll be okay cause i'll see him when it's my time to go. And this song always makes me think of him, and it makes me grateful to blessthefall for writing this song that makes me think of him at random times :')

    My best friend just passed away. He had heart surgery and didn't pull through. This song means so much to me and i cry everytime i hear it but it makes me smile to know that i am going to see him again someday
