"Things Left Unsaid" as written by Bradley Michael Noah, Timothy Dwayne Barrett and Kevin Duane Young....
Just a matter of time a few days ago,
I saw you you were fine
Remembering what you said
About the book you read
The one I got you the beginning of the end

Oh how we talked, for hours upon end
What I would give just to do it again
Your lying there in this hospital bed
Won't you open your eyes
And lets talk once again.

If you fly away tonight,
I wanna tell you that I love you.
I hope that you can hear me,
I hope that you can feel me.
If you fly away tonight,
I wanna tell you that I'm sorry,
That I never told you
When we were face to face.

Well I've been here all night
And I'm watching you
Breathe in and Breathe out
Is it really you or just a machiene
That's giving you life and
Making it seem that there could be hope
I could say it to your face?
If it weren't for you then
There would be no grace
That's covered my life.
You took the time to speak into my mind
And my harsh words were lies

If you fly away tonight
I wanna tell you that I love you
I hope that you can hear me
I hope that you can feel me
If you fly away tonight
I wanna tell you that I'm sorry
That I never told you
When we were face to face

    General CommentI heard on Way FM that this song was for his grandfather, but to me it hits home closer than a grandparent. I watched my mom in the hospital bed and a machine is helping her breath. I wish that I could have told her I loved her one last time. I had so many things I wanted to tell her and now I can only talk to her by praying, but then I cant hear her respond.

    Song MeaningI saw this group in concert and the lead singer said it was about his grandfather. The second verse says:

    there could be hope
    I could say it to your face.
    If it werent for you then
    There would be no grace
    Thats covered my life.
    You took the time to speak into my mind
    And my heart words of life.

    The lyrics are wrong on here.

    My own dear grandfather passed away five months after losing my grandmother. I spent three weeks in ICU watching him die of heartbreak (misdiagnosed as advanced emphysema, COPD, and congestive heart failure). I heard this song a year before his death at a concert, and again on the radio after leaving the hospital, clutching the blanket that lay on him when he took his last breath. I thank God everyday, however, that I didn't leave anything at all unsaid.

    General Commentthis is one of the softer disciple songs, but it's beautiful!!

    anyways
    basically, it's a guy who loves a girl and she's dying and there's many things he didn't tell her yet but that he wants her to know. and he wants to tell her that he loves her but he's not sure if she can hear him.

    General CommentIt seems to be about a relationship. Something happens to the girl, causing her to be hospitalized. However, the guy believes in God, while the girl doesn't, and he worries that there may not be enough time left for him to tell her about Him.

    Amazing song...

    General CommentI wonder if this was a real life experience for someone in the band. Lots of songs like this are.

    General CommentI just heard this song for the first time ever on Air 1 and thought it was beautiful. It's perfect for what's been going on in my life the last two weeks. My grandfather was in a coma for several days, then he came out of it for about two or three days so my mom and I were able to say how much we loved him and I got to sing to him a little bit. He went back in to the coma after being taken off a ventilator on Monday and he passed away yesterday morning. The numbers 3:15 will never again be just a time for me.
    The song is about remembering the times you had with someone who is now dying and saying your final goodbyes, everything you didn't get to say before. It doesn't necessarily have to be a boy/girl situation. It could be anyone anywhere.

    General CommentThis song to me soundsm like a of Love for someone loosing. Someone dying in a hospital bed, unable to breathe on their own and unable to respond or move.
    This song hits home to me very closely considering I sat in my Grandpa's hospital room, just one day after sitting next to him talking to him after a hard morning in college class, eating breakfast. Next day I can't talk to him at all. Just sitting there watching him die. Very moving song and a very emotional song for someone.

    General CommentIn the last three months, I have had a heart attack, total knee replacement surgery, and a couple mini-strokes. Even though these were wake-up calls to my health, I have nearly bit the big one a few times. I would give anything to have my wife, whom I am separated from, to have even been at the hospital - let alone say this to me.
