"A Place Nearby" as written by and Lene Marlin Pedersen....
I entered the room
Sat by your bed all through the night
I watched your daily fight
I hardly knew
The pain was almost more than I could bear
And still I hear
Your last words to me.

Heaven is a place nearby
So I won't be so far away.
And if you try and look for me
Maybe you'll find me someday.
Heaven is a place nearby
So there's no need to say goodbye
I want to ask you not to cry
I'll always be by your side.

You just faded away
You spread your wings you had flown
Away to something unknown
Wish I could bring you back.
You're always on my mind
About to tear myself apart.
You have your special place in my heart.

Always heaven is a place nearby
So I won't be so far away.
And if you try and look for me
Maybe you'll find me someday.
Heaven is a place nearby
So there's no need to say goodbye
I want to ask you not to cry
I'll always be by your side.

And even when I go to sleep
I still can hear your voice
And those words
I never will forget

    General Commentthis sounds like it is about lene dealing with the death of some1 she is very close to. because of the closeness, they won't ever be to far away from each other, even though they have been taken apart

    General Commentthis song means alot to me. It reminds me of my grandad, and his struggle through cancer, seeing him fight every day, until he passed on.

    General CommentI love this song, it makes me happy in a kind of sad way (If that makes any sense). It's kind of obvouise what the song is about. Such a beautiful song and I'm surprised not many people have commented on it.
