I want to cry but the tears won't come
There's blood on the ground, I think I know where it's from
But my hands are tied as I watch you die
'Step away son,the worst is past' He said
But I can't see her breath, she's moving on fast
As the shadowy reaper glides through the trees
He's coming, he's coming, he's come to steal her away from me

Oh, what would it take
To keep you here in my arms bleeding?
Oh, what would it take
Is it so much to just start breathing?

Stay with me, even sleeping

I felt a panic but it happened so fast
Was like noon to dusk but only seconds had past
And we're here between seen, unseen
I know you're crying at the hospital bed
I felt you pleading when I hoped to hear a smile instead
You can listen to the people and the things they will say
Or you can listen to your spirit saying send me on my way

Oh, what would it take
To keep you here in my arms bleeding?
Oh, what would it take
Is it so much to just start breathing?

Stay with me, even sleeping

The sun is down, it's at it's end
I'll follow you as far as I can
The sun is down but the day won't end
I'll follow you as far as I can
The sun is down, she won't mend
I'll follow you as far as I can
The sun is down they say that she won't mend
I can't find you
I can't find you
