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.

    This song is amazing. I think it's the best song I can relate to. I also had lost both my grandparents within a year's time. Shicheii (my maternal grandfather) had passed away may 2010 before I graduated from high school. Then shimasani (my maternal grandmother) had passed away this past september, a month after I left for college and a few days after my birthday :( this song reminds me so much of them. I never wanted to let them go, I wanted them to see my graduate college. But I know I will see them again. As the song says, "meet me by the gates... " that's where I will meet them when it's my turn. I love you, blessthefall. You guys are amazing artists!
