I see you sitting there hardly talking
Just starring onwards with years in your eyes
I see you sleeping but barely dreaming
What is going on behind those fearful cries

I need to know now, I need to know now I need to know before you go

I see you whisper but I can't hear you
I see those tears now that slowly fill your eyes
I want to hold you but I can't feel you
Then the tear drops to the floor and then it dries

I need to know now, I need to know now I need to know before you go

I see you falter as you stand up
I try to keep you up for a short while
Then to the window as you stare out
I see you try to hide the pain behind your smile

I need to know now, I need to know now I need to know before you go

I see you lye down and see you breathing
I hold you're hand now if only for awhile
If only I could just let you hear me
I tell you how I felt but I've missed by half a mile

I need to know now, I need to know now I need to know before you go

The things you achieved in your lifetime
Is more than most could wish before they die
It's got so quiet you can hear a pin drop
All I hear is the sad sound of goodbye

I need to know now, I need to know now I need to know before you go

As you leave now on your final journey
Your world's so empty and cold I testify
I wish I'd said those words of meaning
Now I won't get another chance I wholly verify

I need to know now, I need to know now I need to know before you go
