Candice Skjonnemand – Counting Down lyrics

The doctor leaks poisonous words from her mouth
I don't wanna believe what I'm hearing
I can't accept time's running out
I've exhausted my options,
I've endured the pain.
So why is it mercy won't yield to me?
I've been so strong through it all.

I feel so alone
Like I'm the only one
I'm fading slowly
My energy is gone
How can I live when I know there's not much time to live for?

So I'm counting down
Til I can go home and see you again
I wish that I could do it all again
I'm counting down
Til I can go home and meet the maker
I'll ask him why he made it this way

There's so many things I had left to do
Now I can't get them done and there's nowhere to run
My body lies empty my soul full of life
They keep telling me to be grateful for
All the days I have left and to breath in
But how can I breathe the air
Without counting my last breath

I'm still so afraid
I know what's done is done
Father why can't I stay?
Is this playground overrun?

How can I live?
Why should I go?
I was happy where I am.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
