Are we at war tonight
Will there be angels whispering to me good night
Don’t wake when lighting strikes
My heart for you is true
Let no one take that from you
Time is running tight
Can’t change from wrong to right
So I close my eyes and dream a little
Just like how we used to be, baby

It’s time to say fare-well
No need to cry or feeling sorrow
It’s alright, all in the book of life
Heaven grant me one last wish, I beg you
Let me say these words before I go

I will love you 'til the end of time
Every breath of mine, I’ll hold you by my side
But I rest in peace, my sweetheart, would you
Let me die in your arms with you
Only you can stop the rain tonight
Only you can change my world from black to white
So I’ll close my eyes and dream a little more

Are we at war tonight
Will there be angles whispering to me good night
Don’t wake when lighting strikes
Heaven grant me one last wish I beg you
Let me say these words before I go

I will love you 'til the end of time
Every breath of mine, I’ll hold you by my side
But I rest in peace, my sweetheart, would you
Let me die in your arms with you
Only you can stop the rain tonight
Only you can give me strength to fight
'Til the sky is burning, it’s the end of time

Look ahead tomorrow, a long and winding road
Keep the faith of mine, don’t let it go
You’re the only reason night ain’t growing cold
What would I do, without you

I will love you 'til the end of time
Every breath of mine, I’ll hold you by my side
But I rest in peace, my sweetheart, would you
Let me die in your arms with you
Only you can stop the rain tonight
Only you can make my world so bright
Life, no longer empty
With you in my heart
In my heart

    General CommentThis is a sad song and I love it. I think it's about a guy who either broke up with his girlfriend or had a fight with her and he's dying or found out he's dying and he asks for a chance to tell her that he loves her.

    General Comment"Let Me Die" is the theme song for the fantastic Hong Kong chinese movie, "2002". It's a very sad song indeed.. Most guys these days aren't as devoted and true anymore. Hee..
