It's just a matter of time a few days ago
I saw you, you were fine
Remembering what you said
About the book you read
The one I got you
The Beginning of the End
Oh how we'd talk
For hours upon end
What I give
Just to do it again
But you're lying there
In this hospital bed
Won't you open you eyes
And let's talk once again

If you fly away tonight
I want to tell you that I love you
I hope that you can hear me
I hope that you can feel me
If you fly away tonight
I want to tell you that I'm sorry
That I never told you
When we were face to face

Well I've been here all night
And I'm watching you
Breathe in and breathe out
Is it really you
Or just a machine
That's giving you life
And it's making seem
That there could be hope
I could say to your face
If it weren't for you
That there would be no grace
That's covered my life
You took the time
To speak into my mind
And my heart
Words of life


So goodbye for now
And I'll see you again
Some way, somehow
When it's my turn
To go to the other side
I'll hold you again
And melt at your smile
Now all I have
Are the ones that I'm with
And you taught me not
To take for granted
The time that we have
To show that we care
Speak into their minds
And their hearts
While their here
And say I love you

    This song's meaning to me is very strong... I went to visit my girlfriend one Saturday and she decided to introduce me to her Grandparents. The day before I found this song and it struck me hard as a sad song. We visited with her Grandparents for about an hour or so and left because we had to walk to her house and it was going to rain. The next day she & I were talking when the phone rang. It was her mom, telling her she was coming to pick her up because something had happened. I waited with her as her mom came to pick her up. Then they left, and I waited for her to come back. When she did, she told me her Grandpa had died from a heart attack. I was stunned, I'd only met him a day before. This song reminds me that people can't put off things they know should be done as soon as possible. Now whenever I hear this song, I think of her Grandpa, the man I knew for just a day, but I'll never forget how much our one hour of knowing each other impacted my life. I miss him...

    This reminds me of how my grandma died when I was 7. She had lots of advice that got me out of situation after situation. Then one autumn night, when I settled down for a long snooze, my dad told me that he had something to tell me. When I got out to the kitchen, he said "Daughter, I'm sorry for you." I was confused until he finnaly said, "...Your grandma died today at exactly 5:26..." Now, when I hear this song, I always remember her and one peice of advice that she
    gave me that helped me through life, " Always, and in all ways, when you have time, remember your relitives who have died. If you do, once again you can talk together." I miss grandma... :'(

    My grandaughters very best friend died from a closed head injury after falling off a golf cart when they were riding in the neighborhood. I feel that this song would have significant meaning to her, although I cannot bring myself to let her hear this.

    My meaning is so simple to be honest. I lost my dad this way, the lyrics, every line is another memory from that experience. It all happened in this exact way.

    What does this song mean, it means when you lose someone, and you hope that they hear you when you say that you loved them and you feel the regret that you never told them when they were still with you. Its about cherishing what you have left and taking what that person taught you and live your life but this time the right way.

    When the band was maybe a month, or something, kevin's dad died... And made this song in his honor. And in the album horseshoes and handgrenades, he made a sequel which was the song eternity.
