The Wake Up Call – Speak Softly lyrics

I never thought it'd end like this
With one breath and then your voice
I never thought its would end like this
With one breath and I can hear your voice

You want me, you touched me
But you know
I'm never yours
You need me, you bleed me
And for once, for once
I'm never yours

So take your last breath and say your words
I'll be the first one to hear, to hear your voice
So take your last breath and sing me to sleep
So speak softly from your lips of poetry

You know it didn't end like this
It could have been a false alarm
I swear it didn't have to end like this
I swear that you could have been the one

I never thought it'd end like this
(like this)
I never got to say goodbye
