Always living in bliss and ignorance
Never the thought of doubt or consequence
We never thought that we would live to see the day
When her breath stopped and her eyes turned away

And as the moments pass I live with regret
We rocked the cradle, and we stole her from her bed
Just another thought swirling in my head
We rocked the cradle, and we stole her from her bed
We stole her from her bed

I recall the visit; I recall it oh so well
And when we heard the news, we swore we'd never tell
Given the chance, would I have spoken?
Of the fears and dreams and dreams all now broken

And as the moments pass I live with regret
We rocked the cradle, and we stole her from her bed
Just another thought swirling in my head
We rocked the cradle, and we stole her from her bed
We stole her from her bed

Can't go on with this weight on my shoulder
Stuck in this moment, only growing older
Everyone has their chance when the time is right
Just hold on, you'll make it through the night

And as the moments pass I live with regret
We rocked the cradle, and we stole her from her bed
Just another thought swirling in my head
We rocked the cradle, and we stole her from her bed
We stole her from her bed
