As life fades by

I hold her tight

Wish it was me

Who died that night

Time stood still

As she drove by

Faster than her wings could fly


(CHORUS)

If I die before I wake

Is it safe around me?

If I pray my soul to keep

Is it safe around me?

And if I die before I wake

Is it safe around me?

As I close my eyes to sleep

Is it safe around me?


As fast as time

She lost her way

Faster than night

Brings the day

Life is more

Than some may say

Fly too fast

And you fade away


(CHORUS)


I'll forever hear the pain in your cries

Should have held you close and safe by my side

I can still see the tears in your eyes

Pain inside

Cannot hide

Wished I died

Oh, your eyes...


(CHORUS)

Pain inside

Cannot hide

Wished I died

Wished I died

Safe surrounding me

Safe surrounding me
