about

When you’re living your last years on borrowed time,
The medication and the routines.
Driven by the will to carry on,
Fight the cancer, keep the body strong.

Is there anything family can do?
Work together, lift the stress from you.
Are the pills still working, is it worthwhile?
All the suffering but still you smile.

Could you wait for the snowfall?
Could you breathe easy here?
Could you wait for the change in wind, when it sings?

Push forward.
(You’re never lost alone so never give up)
“But honestly, I’m bound to leave some day”
Are you scared?
(You’re never lost alone so never give up)
‘Cause growing up and growing old comes to us all.

Wooden carvings, and porcelain that bears her name,
Forgotten trinkets from the bookcase.
Sitting still (watching things) collecting dust,
“I’d always planned a different end for us”.

“I’m not done here yet”.

Could you wait for the snowfall?
Could you breathe easy here?
Could you wait for the change in the wind, when it sings?

Push forward.
(You’re never lost alone so never give up)
“But honestly, I’m bound to leave some day”
Are you scared?
(You’re never lost alone so never give up)
‘Cause growing up and growing old comes to us all.

Swapping your blood out; find a vein,
“This often happens with men your age”.
After all of this, just let him be,
It’s all we ask; to live and die in peace.

“I’m not done here yet”.
