I held Death's hand this evening.

Can't keep my heart from beating, can't keep my throat from screaming.
There has to be another way for me to keep on living.
I held Death's hand this evening, closed my eyes, now I'm dreaming.
I promise I won't leave here, "don't let me die", I'm fucking screaming.

'Cause I've got more life to left to live, got some promises to keep.
To all the hearts that carried me out from the ocean deep.
I've had to do some searching, to understand the reasons for every selfish feeling...
I held Death's hand this evening.

Now my lungs are failing, and my heart is fading.
My mind is taking me so far away I'm dreaming.
For every selfish reason, I tipped the bottle drowning,
I'll pour my heart out to stop you from leaving.
I held Death's hand this evening, closed my eyes now I'm dreaming.
I promise I won't leave here, "don't let me die", I'm fucking screaming.

'Cause I've got more life to left to live, got some promises to keep.
To all the hearts that carried me out from the ocean deep.
I've had to do some searching, to understand the reasons - for every selfish feeling...
I held Death's hand this evening.

You're the ones that kept me going, I owe you this much.
You gave me the strength to say "Hey Death, get fucked!"
You're the ones that kept me going, I owe you this much.
You gave me the strength to say "Hey Death, get fucked!"
Now my lungs are failing, and my heart is fading.
My mind is taking me...
