The water's edge
Is where she waits
Lost soul still wondering

Meant to die
But she's stuck
Not crossing over

The other side
Is where he waits
His spirit reaching out

Meant to save
But she's too scared
To take his hand

Living in a world without you (drowning in the past)
Is living in no world at all
So now I call on you

Remember me
I gave you life
You would not take it

Your suffering
Was all in vain?
It's almost over now
Don't turn your back on paradise

Feeling scared
She's prepared
To give up everything

She can't stand
To feel like half of her is fading

He will choose
The only way
To rid her of her pain

Take her soul now
The decision has been made

Living in a world without love (burning into my soul)
Ss living in a wordless world
So I will call on you

Remember me
I gave you life
You would not take it

Your suffering
Was all in vain?
It's almost over

Remember me
You were so young
How could I tell you?

Remember me
I am the one
Who saved your life that night

I was the one who would not abandon you
Even in death i was the one who would not leave you

I used my freedom to protect you
And all the world around you
Do you remember me this time
Even in death I gave you life
I gave you life

(Instrumental section)

Born to do
Deserve a place
A place beside you

This time when I
Reach out my hand
It reached all the way
To heaven

Remember me
I gave you life
You would not take it

Your suffering
Was all in vain?
It's almost over now

Goodbye
It's almost over now

Goodbye
It's time
I release you from this life
Don't turn your back on paradise
