it's been so long since you've been here, and i'm dying is there something you would like to say? just drop the present on the shelf, by the flowers and make the feeling go away looking back i can't recall, who was listening when i used to walk the streets at night like a bird that used to sing, i was flying i was happy all the time, and it's hard to look back better days and different ways i can't explain another song to sing it all was simplified don't know what it's about, what have i learned to live without? it takes a day to live a life i can't believe the way the world is so different look what the lines in my face have made living in my bed i'm right next to the road the one that goes the other way, takes me to a different place did you know, that i was just as young as you i had a job, a home, a family, and a car did you say that yesterday or just right now? you'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart did you say that yesterday or just right now? you'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart

    General CommentI totally agree with rbfboy212 that its about someone who he is dying, and i think he was pretty young. "Did you know i was just as young as you" (before the disease started). He doesnt want to die, but its inevitable, he was so happy, and now he lies helplessly in his bed and watches his friends saying goodbye. I think you're totally wrong Nimbus, its not from the point of view of the visitor but from the person in bed, and i really want to say that he is not mean or anything. "I'm dying, is there something you would like to say?" I'm thinking what i would do if someone is really saying this to me, its too cruel to imagine. "Make the feeling go away", the feeling that he is dying without beeing able to see some of the things he wanted to see. He's long dead, trapped in his bed.
    This songs shows me what is possible with words, i mean the lyrics perfectly catch the situation, snd the music just fits. Just sad, one one the best songs possible.
