I felt the car crash, it happened so fast
I thought that I would never catch my breath again
The dangling seat belts, the burning fuel smells,
You were saying that the blood would stain your dress
And then…

I thought back to New Years night
The angry words, the awful fight
We suffer for our sins, I’ve suffered for my sins

You were so scared, that’s the thing I most remember
The way your hand felt in mine, I wish I still could

I want you to know, what happened when I lost you
I wish you could feel, this aching that’s replaced you
So here among these gathered few
With hardened hearts and empty pews
I pray that this will too pass and leave
That I could be a man of faith
In this quiet home that we both made
And tell our son and daughter I believe
In God…

Oh Oh the worst is, those things we manage
Don’t let yourself cry in front of the kids
And I’m so exhausted, that I think I’ve lost it
6 months ago I had it all

I thought back to New Years night
The angry words, the awful fight
We suffer for our sins, I’ve suffered for my sins

You were so scared, that’s the thing I most remember
The way your hand felt in mine, I wish I still could

I want you to know, what happened when I lost you
I wish you could feel, this aching that’s replaced you
So here among these gathered few
With hardened hearts and empty pews
I pray that this will too pass and leave
That I could be a man of faith
In this quiet home that we both made
And tell our son and daughter I believe
In God…

Early in the morning, sitting on the couch beside you
And Ike is staring at your face
Ruby softly asks me for blankets and cartoons
Why would that be what plays in my head

Reggie scratched the front door and I told you stay put
And you just kept singing Less Than Jake
But the moment that I returned
You sprang from our back room
Why would that be what plays in my head

If Your hand could take her, just take me too.
