Her eyes were closed when I caught her in bed
Oh, she seemed much happier then
I sat by her side and I couldn't help but cry
I was here for a reason and I
Finally understood and my oh my
Could only ask myself why oh why
Can't we talk this through and make things right?
Oh, I'd sure as hell like to try
Right about this time she opened her eyes
And asked how long I had been there
Well, my tongue was tied
I said nothing, I just stared
She said, "Oh, I didn't think you cared..."
Well, I wasn't ready for what she said next
She said, "There is nothing else that you can do
No, you can't understand what I'm going through
And if the world has changed, well, I'll be damned
Oh, 'cause I'm no good at being brave
Not even on the better days
And there are things we cannot save
No matter how hard we try
There is nothing else that you can do
No, you can't understand what I'm going through
And if the world has changed, well, you'll do fine..."
Oh, I tried, but no, I could not stand
I touched her with a trembling hand
I choked
I could not say goodbye
No matter how hard I tried
