We can make it tonight,
If we just hold on tight,
And I'm feeling alright,
Crack a window it's fine.

Well make it in good time…

Maybe too complacent,
But you weren't to know,
The painful confirmation,
The sad scenario

You at least said goodbye,
When you held her hand high,
I was moved by the story she told

Time won’t go slow,
On your ‘say-so’.
And time won’t go quick,
And I can’t make it.

Were you sleeping?
Were you dreaming?
I wonder if you heard them say, ‘is he breathing?’
Was the room cold?
I was three years old,
When your actions said it all,
(You) didn't have to say it
