7. By The Bed
Her eyes were closed when I caught her in bed
She looked 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
I had to ask myself why oh why
Can't we talk this through and make things right?
Oh 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.
She said: "Oh I didn't think you cared..."
Well, I wasn't ready for what she said next. 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 I'll be damned.
'Cause I'm no good at being brave. Not even on the better days.
And there are things we cannot save
No matter how hard we try."
"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..."
Oh I tried, but no I could not stand
I touched her with a trembling hand
I choked. I would not say goodbye
