You were fast asleep when I came home
Breathing like a baby, looking so alone
I wanted to wake you because I'd had this crazy thought
That I needed you to hear in case we didn't get to talk

Driving down the highway, I was coming from the show
The dreadful wind and rain, the car just lost control
And I'm thinking to myself as we skid across the road
I do not need to know those things that angels know

If anything should ever happen
I wanted you to know
I'd always want more days with you
A chance to share a laugh or two
I wouldn't have a choice just so you know
If I should ever go

I see us at a funeral and my heart begins to pound
With respect to my mortality, I can not stand that sound
What if you couldn't hear me but I could see your soft brown curls?
The echoes of a promise in a new born baby girl
So darling I just had to wake you, you're still half sleeping though
To tell you what I felt tonight, those things that the angels know

If anything should ever happen
I wanted you to know
I'd always want more days with you
A chance to share a tear or two
I wouldn't have a choice just so you know
If I should ever go
