lyrics

Open your eyes to see yourself inside a paralyzed state.
You've slept too long, your skin is thin, you can't wake up from this dream.

Your cells divide in such a way that you can’t keep up the pace.
And we scream.

I can’t forget what they said when you left.
It’s not your fault, you played your part, now you just have to exist.
I can’t forget what I said on that day.
Please don’t forget me.

And when your breath starts to slow, I know your pain will follow suit.
My thoughts abide, my prayers are cried.
Son, no one listens for you.
If you acknowledge our prayers are unheard,
They’re merely God’s spoken word.
And then I hope when I die,
He leaves me waiting in line.

They say the pain goes away.
I’m waiting counting the days.

I can’t forget what they said when you left.
It’s not your fault, you played your part, now you just have to exist.
I can’t forget what I said on that day.
Please don’t forget me.
You will live with regret for the rest of your days.
You will try your best to trade out your life for his.

(Please don’t forget me.)
And in this moment, I can still make out the frame of your face.
(I can feel you watching, are you still here with me?)
Your shoulders broad, your voice is strong, but all the details, replaced.
(From higher places. Please come find me.)
It scares me every day to think that I’ll forget everything.
(If you left a sign for me to find,)
A moment froze in time to watch a loved one die and watch a soul slip away.
(Then I’ve been looking, I’m still waiting.)
Your love is brought out through the hope we carry in life.
We speak in joy and praise of all the love you carried inside.

I struggle through every day.
I smile through all the pain.
I know it’s what you would say.
I wish it was me.

I can’t forget what they said when you left.
It’s not your fault, you played your part, now you just have to exist.
I can’t forget what I said on that day.
Please don’t forget me.
You will live with regret for the rest of your life.
You will try your best to trade out your life for his.
