She sees him laying in the bed alone tonight
Only thing touching him is a crack of light
Pieces of her hair are wrapped around and 'round his fingers
And he reaches for her side, for any sign of her that lingers

And she says you are not alone
Laying in the light
Put out the fire in your head
And lay with me tonight

One of them bullets went straight for the jugular vein
There were people running
A flash of light
Then everything changed
Nothing really matters in the end you know
All the worrys sever
Don't be afraid for me my friend
One day we all fall down forever

And you are not alone
Laying in the light
Put out the fire in your head
And lay with me tonight

Her wedding date was June just like any other bride
She loved him like no one before
It was good to be alive
But sometimes that can slip away as fast
As any fingers through your hands
So you let time forgive the past and
Go and make some other plans

And you are not alone
Laying in the light
Put out the fire in your head
And lay with me tonight
You are not alone
Laying in the light
Put out the fire in your head
And lay with me tonight

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who died and has come back to comfort her fiance and tell him that she is still with him in spirit. If so, it is a very sweet, but tragic song and a lesson to us all that we must love with everything we have while we have our loved ones with us.

    General CommentThis is a really beautiful song, I found it about 3 years ago and never knew who it was by. So gorgeous and sad at the same time, and true, about a girl who's died and is back in some form to comfort the man she loved. tear-jerker.

    General Commentsadly i heard this song was based on a true story of two women who were killed when a man walked into a planned parenthood and started shooting. One of the women, Shannon Lowney, was to be married later that year.
