Hope was closing with my eyes, down the shallow grave I was lying
Then I heard someone say you'll be stuck here forever, but I prayed it wasn't forever
'Cause you were leaning over me, clutching memories of when I was alive, and then you breathed life into me one last time.
But I prayed it wasn't the last time, because it would be so wonderful to see your starry eyes again.
Give me more than the things that I've lived for
I'm only echoes of the man that I'm supposed to be
Because I want more of the things I'd die for
I want to feel it in my soul
Now that you've unburied me
Dust me off and carry me home
And I beg you sing life to me again
I promise this won't happen again
Because it would be so wonderful to see your starry eyes again
