lyrics

I wish I could taste the love that I'd grown
I wish I could reap the seeds that I'd sown
I wish I could hear you now, but you're gone. Yeah you're gone
And I am all alone
A foundation of rock and stone; of love and days
I told you that I'd take your hand; that I'd find a way
Now all of your dreams have come true my dear. I'll smile, and I'll wait
For the day that doesn't exist

And my bones feel empty away from the comfort of yours
And my blood it runs thin without my heartbeat now
Away from you
Not ever us

Your dad has your arm; you traverse the isle
My dear, how you glow. Damn, look at you smile
You're speaking words and holding my hands. You say
"Now how did I score such a good man?"
I say "Turn around now. It's your time."
Feel the knife in my chest as you catch his eye
You say "I do." and he says the same. What a shame
I wish I were him, and we were forever

And my bones feel empty away from the comfort of yours
And my blood it runs thin without my heartbeat now
Away from you
Not ever us

These days I'm old. By now I thought I'd have died
Gray hair; and a thinner hide
Broken hearts never heal, and men; they will change; Grow small
I'm not half the man that I once was
Now everybody's left the room; left me alone with you
I lay down by your side; hardly room for two
Your deathbed's no place for me, but I wanted to see you out. Please don't go
Hold your hand for the last time. Oh my dear.

And my bones feel empty away from the comfort of yours
And my blood it runs thin without my heartbeat now
Away from you
Not ever us

Try to find me, my dear, in the next room
Without my heart here on earth, well I'll be there soon
Cause I've always followed my hear
