Song For The Dying (M.Brooks) Sadly written from personal experience. What do you say when someone you love is dying slowly in front of you? These are some of my thoughts I couldn't say out loud.
We both know what's happening We're both afraid to say it As if not mentioning the word Will manage to delay it I ask how you are I can see you're getting worse And it would trake a miracle To break this deadly curse
CHORUS And I wish you the best for the rest of your life I pray for the pain to go away It's not yet night enjoy the twilight Make the most of the remains of the day
You're such an integral part of my life I can't imagine you leaving But while you're still here I hold back the tears Now's not the time for greiving Our time together's so special I can't face the truth it must stop And though the river has almost run dry Let's eak out each last drop
This may be our last conversation But that was always the same You don't want to talk of religion or philosephy But of everyday things, the mundane Our past together is over The future's a dream away So young or old healthy or not We can only live for today
