Scene begins as a telephone rings Chokes a gasp at the awful news it brings A phone call she's been avoiding She knows he's reached the end Hooked up the respirator It breaths life into my callused lungs My heart beat's getting fainter I know my time has come
It's getting colder Been trying to show her that I'm not the one To be there beside her Now I'm crossing over Can no one console her? Alone she'll remain With no way to end this pain
Now I realize the things that I (all of the things that I wanted in this world) The things i have done to you (what have I done to you?) Why you gave your love with all your heart (hands went way too fast) With all that a heart can give
Intentions that you'll never know The reason why I had to lead astray I gave you a lifetime of pain and remorse (mistakes that were never yours) The wrong in my life can never be right (it flashes before my eyes)
(How did he come to this? His mind is working harder than ever before Thousands of thoughts in seconds His last thoughts were of her, and how he and he alone had destroyed the once vibrant spirit he had coveted so deeply The last pain he had ever caused is to the only woman who ever loved him...)
Bright light is calling me upward (a ghost for now) I follow and leave you below Now you're all alone And I leave you with nobody by your side Not to hurt you ever again Never break your spirit for me Now I'm all alone Still I cherish the things that you've given to me Bright light is calling me upward I follow and leave you below Now...
