When she got the news
The phone hit the floor
She fell to her knees and cried his name
He had just kissed her lips and both of the kids
Their lives will never be the same
At the end of her hardest day
The only words she could say were

I want you to live
I want you to love
I wanna go back to the way it was
To hear you say my name again
I wanna see your smile again
I want you to live

Takes all her strength to go through his things
It feels like she's holdin' him again
The letters he wrote the books that he read
And some of the shirts still have his scent
Their picture in Florida
She holds to her heart and cry's out loud

I want you to live
I want you to love
I wanna go back to the way it was
To hear you say my name again
I wanna see your smile again
I want you to live

Lying awake in the middle of the night
Trying not to let the kids hear her cry
She prays for answer or some little sign
She closes her eyes and swears she
Hears him say

I want you to live
I want you to love
I want you to go on and not give up
I want you to fall in love again
I wanna see you smile again and again
I want you to live
