He sits in his cell,
And he lays on his bed.
Covers his head and closes his eyes.
He sees a smoking gun,
And the coward he ran.
And in his arms is the bleeding,
Love of his life.

And she cries,
Kiss it all better,
I’m not ready to go.
It’s not your fault love,
You didn’t know, you didn’t know.

Her hands are so cold,
And he kisses her face.
And says “Everything will be all right”.
He noticed the gun,
And his rage grew inside.
He said “I’ll avenge my lover tonight”.

And she cried,
Kiss it all better,
I’m not ready to go.
It’s not your fault love,
you didn’t know, you didn’t know.

Now he sits behind prison bars,
25 to life and shes not in his arms.
He couldn’t bring her back with a bullet to the heart,
Of the back of a man and tore his world apart.

He was only a memory,
All it is, is a memory.
hey, hey.

He cries,
Stay with me until I fall asleep,
Stay with me.
Stay with me until I fall asleep,
Stay with me.
Stay with me until I fall asleep,
Stay with me.
Stay with me until I fall asleep,
Stay with me.

Kiss it all better,
I’m not ready to go.
It’s not your fault love,
You didn’t know, you didn’t know.

(Kiss it all better.)
Stay with me until I fall asleep,
Stay with me.
Stay with me until i fall asleep,
Stay with me.
(kiss it all better.)
Stay with me until I fall asleep,
Stay with me.
Stay with me until I fall asleep,
Stay with me.

    General CommentThe meaning behind this song is it's telling a story.
    A man is sitting in his jail cell remembering the night that his true love died and his world ended.
    The two were out together and a man shot his love. The killer dropped the gun and ran as the girl now lay dying in her lover's arms. She asks him to "Kiss it all better" because she doesn't want to die yet. Then she tells him that "It's not your fault love, you didn't know" which is her telling him not to blame himself, he could have done nothing to stop it. After the girl has died the man picks up the gun the man dropped and goes after him. When he sees him he shoots the man right through the back and straight through his heart. Presently, the man is now in prison for 25-life. All he has left are the memories of his love and that tragic night. "Stay with me until I fall asleep" I think is something that they both shared. She asked him to stay with her as she dies, and now he's asking her to stay with him even though now she's gone.

    This is such a beautiful and sad song. I love it so much.
