And if you see me losing ground
Don't be afraid to lie
I know the pain inside my heart
Can't break the fear inside of yours
And if you see me losing faith in what it means to die
Don't let me leave before I know what lies beyond the stained-glass doors

Save sorrow for the souls in doubt
Bleed every care out

Will you carry me down the aisle the final day,
With your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight?
When you lower me down beneath that sky of gray,
Let the rain fall down and wash away your pain.

For every word we never spoke,
We have a tear to cry
For every silence like a wall between a better you and I.
So if you see me losing sight of all the death and life
You find the peace in every time I failed to see the death in mine

Let all the fear inside you drown
Tear out the blade and lay it down
Save sorrow for the souls in doubt
Bleed every care out

Will you carry me down the aisle the final day,
With your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight?
When you lower me down beneath that sky of gray,
Let the rain fall down and wash away your pain.

Oh, all the blood is rushing out
Oh, I'm better off without
Oh, the walls are closing in
Oh, sing for me again

Will you carry me down the aisle the final day,
With your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight?
When you lower me down beneath that sky of gray,
Let the rain fall down and wash away your pain.

Will you carry me down the aisle the final day,
With your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight?
When you lower me down beneath that sky of gray,
Let the rain fall down and wash away your pain.

    Carry Me Down is a Song about a funeral.

    "Carry me down the isle that final day" refers to carrying the coffin, "lowering down beneath that sky of grey" refers to burial.

    And the most important line of the song is "Save sorrow for the souls in doubt" Which leads me to believe the dead person was a follower of Jesus Christ, whose soul is not in doubt but written in the Lambs Book of life! The lyrics are a comfort to the friends of the deceased saying don't be sad, save sorrow for those who do not know where they will spend eternity.

    I have asked my close family to play this song at my funeral, as I have been saved by the Grace of God and now know for certain that my name is written in the book of life since before creation. Hope DH brings their guitars and drums, heaven wont be right without them!

    At the age of 3 my little brother Braeden went to be with the Lord in heaven on April 18, 2009. It has been over two years since then, and even though I know I will see him again the pain is still there. It doesnt matter who you are, if a close friend or relative passes away you will experience pain remember even Jesus wept. But even through the pain we must remember the reason we are here, to spread the good news and make sure when everyone has a happy reunion in heaven, like I know I will have.

    For me it means that we shouldn't moan as the world does when those who we love and who are christians die. as the last verse says oh the blood is rushing out, im better off without,oh the walls are closing in,oh sing for me again. we should be rejoicing for them as they are in a better place.
