Are you looking for a way out? Cause I am too
Could I lend a hand to help? To get you through
This pain, this heartache, brought upon you
Why does God bring us all these things that hurt our souls?
New chapters start in life when pages unfold
We'll write our own words so our story is told

We're searching for hope in this broken place
We're living our lives in the hardest way
We're eating our food but not satisfying the hunger for you
And memories form the distant past
Come racing towards me oh way too fast
So tell me what it's worth
Would you do things differently with your last day, your last day on Earth?

Are you praying every night? Cause I am too
God can help you hold on tight, to get you through
This pain, this heartache, you know it's true

We're searching for hope in this broken place
We're living our lives in the hardest way
We're eating our food but not satisfying the hunger for you
And memories form the distant past
Come racing towards me oh way too fast
So tell me what it's worth
Would you do things differently with your last day, your last day on Earth?

(Monologue)
I never thought anything in the world could separate us
You were always so full of life, making jokes at life itself
Never once did I catch you without a smile on your face
I remember every holiday and birthday
We would all come over to your house
My mother gave me a picture the other day
The first picture taken of me and you
She said she found it in your desk drawer with nothing else
I never knew how much I meant to you
I didn't know whether to laugh or cry
All that came to mind was sitting by your hospital bed
You looked through my eyes so strong and stable
As if you saw death as a brother, as if it weren't the end
I can't seem to believe that you're gone
You were the only one who saw potential in me
Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and the time we spent
I just wanted to say I miss you
