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!

    I love this song, it makes me want to cry, but we can all agree with sally sparrow that sad is happy for deep people. I just want to say what a great doctor david was and i miss him. Lets hear it four the doctor!

    The doctor is dying! What is there to say? He is dying its tragic. Like the 10th doctors regeneration was a tear jerker for me.

    The song is really sad and all, and i would love to write page up and page down about it, but it seems that others have already done so. Just one thing i'm questioning, though. Isn't it supposed to be "your song is ending, sir don't cry", instead of "your song is ending, so don't cry,"? I don't know, it just sounds like it.

    I cried so hard at this eppisode, david's regeneration was the most upsetting and dramatic, i can't even explain it properly without crying! The words "i don't want to go" are the most emotional ever, they make me cry, without fail, i have this episode on my ipod and whenever i watch it, i cry. David was the best doctor, and always will be!!! :'(
