i used to rely on you, but then i saw
you, staring up from under sheets that
lie on top of hospital beds, but where is
your pulse? you want to pull that IV
right out of my arm, but why don’t
you? why don’t you stay?

don’t die on me tonight (x6)

if sorry was an honest statement
this lost cause won’t hit the pavement
you believe its lost its gone, i believe in
hope, and carrying on and i’m
pacing back and forth for you,
when in emergency rooms, but don’t say
a damn word cause, your eyes, they have
said enough, said enough

it’s hard to operate, when your threats,
are just as empty as the other side of
your bed late at night, but where is
your heart tonight? you pray for second
chances, on second hand clocks, but why
don’t you? why don’t you stay?


don't die on me tonight (x6)

if sorry was an honest statement
this lost cause won’t hit the pavement
you believe its lost its gone, i believe in
hope, and carrying on and i’m
pacing back and forth for you,
when in emergency rooms, but don’t say
a damn word cause, your eyes, they have
said enough

if sorry was an honest statement,
this lost cause won’t hit the pavement,
i won’t sit and watch you die, i’ve
paced to mirrors on the wall, i’m
staring back at my refelection, but i
don’t say a word cause my eyes they
have said enough
