Sarabeth is scared to death
To hear what the doctor will say
She hasn't been well
Since the day that she fell
And the bruise it just wont go away

So she sits and she waits with her mother and dad
And flips through an old magazine
'Til the nurse with a smile stands at the door
And says "Will you please come with me?"

Sarabeth is scared to death
Cause the doctor just told her the news
Between the red cells and white
Something's not right
But we're gonna take care of you

Six chances in ten it wont come back again
With the therapy we're gonna try
It's just been approved it's the strongest there is
I think we caught it in time
Sarabeth closes her eyes

And she dreams she dancin' around and around
Without any cares
And her very first love
Is holding her close
And the soft wind is blowing her hair

Sarabeth is scared to death
As she sits holding her mom
Cause It would be a mistake
For someone to take
A girl with no hair to the prom

For just this morning right there on her pillow
Was the cruelest of any surprise
She cried when she gathered it all in her hands
The proof that she couldn't deny
Sarabeth closes her eyes

And she dreams she dancin' around and around
With out any cares
And her very first love
Was holding her close
And the soft wind was blowing her hair

It's quarter to seven
That boy's at the door
And her daddy ushers him in
When he takes off his cap they all start to cry
Cause this morning where his hair had been
Softly she touches just skin

And they go dancin' around and around
Without any cares
And her very first true love
Was holding her close
And for a moment she isn't scared

    This song i think is about that it dosent matter if you have cancer somebody will be there with you because they love you with all there heart. In this case is the boyfriend that he ended up bold because he loved her.

    Ooh... pretty song!
    It's about this girl who has caner, and so they put her on chemotherapy, so all of her hair falls out. Since she's bald, she thinks that no one will take her to the prom. But her boyfriend does, and to honor her, he shaves her head before he picks her up.
