  • Go to bed, everything's alright
    Don't know the whole world's changing
    As you sleep through the night
    Wake up slowly and it's a different world

    Hear the news and the floods begin
    Screams so loud but only felt within
    Heart is shattered
    The pieces can't be found

    I feel your pain
    I wrote this song for you, for you
    You will make it, you will make it through
    I promise you he would want you to

    Months go by still living in a daze
    Don't know what you've done
    With the last seven days
    Soul is numb and life is like a dream

    Helping hands but you push them away
    How could they understand
    Don't wanna share your pain
    Afraid to heal 'cause that would mean goodbye

    I feel your pain
    I wrote this song for you, for you
    You will make it, you will make it through
    I promise you, she would want you to

    One day sunlight hits a photograph
    And it makes you smile
    The memories dance around you now
    And they make you smile

    You're not alone, you'll never be
    Just like the stars they oversee
    And they whisper to you you're still, you're still
    You're still, you're still alive

    I feel your pain
    I wrote this song for you, for you
    You will make it, you will make it through
    I promise you, they would want you to

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there, I do not sleep
    I am a thousand winds that blow
    I am the diamond glints on snow

    I am the sun on ripened grain
    I am the gentle autumn rain
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush

    Of quiet birds in circled flight
    I am the soft stars that shine at night
    Do not stand at my grave and cry
    I am not there, I did not die
