This epitaph carved out
With a lover's knife
Into itself inscribed
"I save my life"
Soft breeze blowing
The swinging bridge tonight
Rocking loneliness to sleep
Another cries out to grieve
"I save my life"

Father...

Here, inside the day
The hours pass, fade away
And you hold onto yesterday
Here, in the hour
The minutes fall - how am I happy?
My body hurts...
It hurts to, hurts to be alone

(?)
In the back of your heart
With urgency, it whispers...
It whispers to start
There's an epitaph in our dream
And you see the words
No more, no more, no more tears
For yesterday

Finally
I can hear the sound
Of my own heart beating

Here, inside the day
The hours pass, and they fade away
And you say, "No more...
No more yesterdays"
Here, inside the hour
The minutes fell like the hammer
My body hurts no more
You're now alone
There's an epitaph carved out
With a lover's knife
Into itself inscribed
"I save my life"
There's a cool breeze blowing
Under the swinging bridge
You look out and say now
"No more yesterdays
I save my life"

Finally
I can hear the sound
Of my own heart beating
