Disciple – Things Left Unsaid lyrics

It's just a matter of time a few days ago
I saw you, you were fine
Remembering what you said
About the book you read
The one I got you
The Beginning of the End
Oh how we'd talk
For hours upon end
What I give
Just to do it again
But you're lying there
In this hospital bed
Won't you open you eyes
And let's talk once again

[Chorus:]
If you fly away tonight
I want to tell you that I love you
I hope that you can hear me
I hope that you can feel me
If you fly away tonight
I want to tell you that I'm sorry
That I never told you
When we were face to face

Well I've been here all night
And I'm watching you
Breathe in and breathe out
Is it really you
Or just a machine
That's giving you life
And it's making seem
That there could be hope
I could say to your face
If it weren't for you
That there would be no grace
That's covered my life
You took the time
To speak into my mind
And my heart
Words of life

[Chorus:]

So goodbye for now
And I'll see you again
Some way, somehow
When it's my turn
To go to the other side
I'll hold you again
And melt at your smile
Now all I have
Are the ones that I'm with
And you taught me not
To take for granted
The time that we have
To show that we care
Speak into their minds
And their hearts
While their here
And say I love you

[Chorus:]

    This song's meaning to me is very strong. I went to visit my girlfriend one Saturday and she decided to introduce me to her Grandparents. The day before I found this song and it struck me hard as a sad song. We visited with her Grandparents for about an hour or so and left because we had to walk to her house and it was going to rain. The next day she & I were talking when the phone rang. It was her mom, telling her she was coming to pick her up because something had happened. I waited with her as her mom came to pick her up. Then they left, and I waited for her to come back. When she did, she told me her Grandpa had died from a heart attack. I was stunned, I'd only met him a day before. This song reminds me that people can't put off things they know should be done as soon as possible. Now whenever I hear this song, I think of her Grandpa, the man I knew for just a day, but I'll never forget how much our one hour of knowing each other impacted my life. I miss him.

    The one above is mine. Always remember if you have the chance to tell your mom that you love her than why don't you do it right now. Because maybe later she won't be there anymore. Live your life full of love, but not hatred cause everyone who hates, or says they hate someone means that they don't care what people think of them, and I use to be that way, telling every body that I hated them for no reason. Never give up on yourself for anything that you do. Just go talk to someone about it.

    This song helps me remember what it feels like when people ignore you, your feelings, and what happens in your life. My little sister passed away an hour after she was born, and when I got there she was already dead. Just in case I always like to pray for my sister, because she was all I wanted, and god took her away for me, and my sister. I wish god would have let my sister live for a little while longer because then I could have told her that I love her so much. And it just brings me joy to see that some people care about what I think is right, or true, or whatever. When I listen to this song it brings me joy to know that god is here for my problems and my sins. I have never really gotten a long with my mom when I was living with her, because we would both start arguments back and forth, and since then I really have messed up. But this song reminds me of every chance I could have had when I was with my mom to tell her that I love her so much.

    To me I can relate to this song very deeply, because recently my best friend died after an accident. He was put in a coma and was hospitalized for 11 days. On the 12th day, he passed away. It was very tragic, as I and his other friends were rooting for his recovery. Right before he passed, I had fought with him, and so the words 'i want to tell you that I'm sorry' speak to me ok so many levels. I miss him so much and I can't wait for when we meet again and I can hug him again. This song easily sent me in tears.

    My meaning is so simple to be honest. I lost my dad this way, the lyrics, every line is another memory from that experience. It all happened in this exact way.
    What does this song mean, it means when you lose someone, and you hope that they hear you when you say that you loved them and you feel the regret that you never told them when they were still with you. Its about cherishing what you have left and taking what that person taught you and live your life but this time the right way.

    Meaning behind this song? Well for me personally it just means that suicide is not the only way. I would know because I have attempted suicide 3 times before and its not the only way. My best friend showed me this song, and then asked me "do you really want me to see you again once i'm dead? I rather see you every day that you are here" he is the only one that actually cared about if I was gone. It has been 3 weeks since my last attepmt and I hope that I will never come to the conclusion that I want to enjoy my life as much as I can while I have it.

    This reminds me of how my grandma died when I was 7. She had lots of advice that got me out of situation after situation. Then one autumn night, when I settled down for a long snooze, my dad told me that he had something to tell me. When I got out to the kitchen, he said "Daughter, I'm sorry for you." I was confused until he finnaly said, "...Your grandma died today at exactly 5:26..." Now, when I hear this song, I always remember her and one peice of advice that she
    gave me that helped me through life, " Always, and in all ways, when you have time, remember your relitives who have died. If you do, once again you can talk together." I miss grandma. : '(

    We had a incident that happened today at one of our local high schools where students were hit by a car and well one of them is in a coma and this song completely popped up into my mind. It made think about this girl that probably changed so many lives and now she is in a coma. We are hoping and praying she wakes up and stays with us. Because many people love her dearly and want her back. But this song reminds me of when one day your talking to a person perfectly fine and talking and being themselves and then the next something happens and they are in a coma in a hospital and you feel like there not there and its just the machine. But you hope they don't go and stay here so you can share your time together again and be eachother again. We all still continue to pray for her until shes awake. I don't even know the girl and I want to cry but its in god's hands right now. But yeah this song had popped into my mind when I heard about her.

    It says everything about the day and night I spent sitting at my youngest brother's bedside after he was struck by a car. We were told his brain was swelling out of control and braindeath was inevitable. I never left his side, until they took him away to be an organ donor. I came to this song because of ben breedlove, a very special young man, with a very fitting last name. Go on YouTube and find him. He has alot to teach.

    I read the lyrics to this song and it had a very powerful meaning for me, my friend died two years ago when he was only 13 from a brain tumour. He fought it to he could fight no more. He always had a smile on face at school - and just one day he didn't come to school. Yesterday my mum told me a family friend was diagnosed with breast cancer- she just started chemo and she is getting sicker day by day. Rip stephen. Keep fighting carol.

    This song means to me that you have to say that I love you to your mom or dad, cause their's always somebody that tells you how much they hate their parents but God doesn't like that. He loves people that obey their parent and the bible sais, " obey your fother and mother and eternal life you will have." so go tell that special person that you love them and also to your parents cause imagen if in this verry second you die and you never had the chance to tell them how much you love them with all your heart but go a head and tell them now before its to late. God bless yall all.

    For me, the beginning of the song, it reminds me of how my mom died. A few days back before she died, she was able to still talk to me. And a lot when I was little I'd ask her lots of questions, and now I regret not asking her some things. But when she did get bad, they had a hospital bed put in, and it scared me so bad I stayed away as much as I could. And then the night she died she went into a coma and then about an hour later she died. But ya, you can probably see just looking at all the rest of the lyrics that it tells the story. But this song means a lot to me. She's been gone for almost 2 years. It helps me not to forget all she told me, all of the love she had for me and my family and that one day i'll get to hug her once again and tell her that I love her.
