Her eyes were closed
When I caught her in bed
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
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
Then she said: "Oh, I didn't think you cared."
And I wasn't ready for what she said next:
"There is nothing else
That you can do
You can't understand
What I go through
And if the world has changed
Well I'll be damned
And I'm no good at being brave
Not even on the better days
And there are things we can not save
Oh no matter how hard we try."
She said:
"There is nothing else
That you can do
You can't understand
What I go through
And if the world has changed
Well, you'll do fine."
I tried, but no I could not stand
I touched her with a trembling hane
I choked and could not say goodbye
Oh no matter how hard I tried
