It is returning through the dark
Doctor, you have met your mark.
Your song is ending, so don't cry,
When you hear him knock four times.

You're going to regenerate,
Some new man saunters away,
No time for games tonight we fight,
For the fate of all mankind.

I could do so much more!

The Time Lords returning, the Earth will be burning,
The last white-point star is a trap for the Master.
The Doctor is dying, the Doctor is dying.
The Doctor is dying, the Doctor is dying
.

I don't want to go.
I don't want to go
.

Wilfred will be by your side,
You will always save his life.
Hold on now, not long to wait,
'Til they bring back Gallifrey.
I'll sing you to your sleep.

The Time Lords returning, the Earth will be burning,
The last white-point star is a trap for the Master.

The Doctor is dying, the Doctor is dying.
The Doctor is dying, the Doctor is dying.

I don't want to go.
I don't want to go.

Just one more thing before you fall,
You'll be getting your reward.
Back in time for those you know,
Martha, Donna, Jack, and Rose
.

The Time Lords returning, the Earth will be burning,
The last white-point star is a trap for the Master.

The Time Lords returning, the Earth will be burning,
The last white-point star is a trap for the Master.
The Doctor is dying, the Doctor is dying.
The Doctor is dying, the Doctor is dying.
I don't want to go.
I don't want to go.

Regenerate!

    David tennants doctor grew with his personality and it is sad to see a doctor regenerate and get a new body and the only thing that stays the same is identity. He said regenerating is almost worse than dying because that doctor is dying and in comes a new one who is so different but with the same identity. It was sad because he was a fun doctor and mart smiths is just as good but you can't compare because they're such different doctors and it really is the story of him regenerating and just waiting for those 4 knocks to say well it's the end I'm going to regenerate. It really is like the episode the lyrics are the story line. I wish the doctor was real :(

    David tennants doctor went through so much and he grew as that doctor and even though he will still be the doctor but it's not just that. Almost everything that could change in him changes. His voice, hair, personality etc. The only thing that doesn't change is his identity. Like he said regenerating is just as bad as dying because all of him that one doctor goes away and an almost new man ▶
