Farewell – Before I Wake lyrics

Out in the starless darkness
The city swallowed itself
Traffic signals switched
From green to red
I searched your body for evidence
Under a dogwood canopy
Your hand in mine
Frozen in time
Who would have guessed
Life as we knew was ending

So don't cry
We'll be alright
Once I get you cleaned up
Babe, we're on our way
But if you die before I wake
Have my heart
It's yours to take

A sacrifice for our sake
I'd give my life for you any day

And daylight drew the sickness
I brushed the bangs from you're face
While watch your eyes turn from
Green to red

Back in our old apartment
Collecting dust on a shelf
The memories of you and me
Incinerate from under futhered timber

So don't cry
We'll be alright
Once I get you picked up
Babe, we're on our way
But if you die before I wake
Have my heart
It's yours to take

A sacrifice for our sake
I'd give my life for you any day

Love of mine
Call out
If it eats you from the inside
Out of time
But be sure
I'll be all yours on the other side
Sometimes it's harder
To stay alive

But if you die before I wake
Have my heart
It's yours to take

A sacrifice for our sake
I'd give my life for you any day
