An eventful year that it was
and if i'm still here it's because
the stars have gone out
from behind your eyes
this pain is real
this wound is life size
and i can't believe it
you need to pull through
and i hope you make it
I'm waiting for you

So you are beginning to choke
well how can you not see the joke
the sound of your voice
still rings in my ears
it's tired and angry
and quiet all these years

This situation
it tears us apart
and we joke about it
we make jokes of ourselves

But we know
But, but we know
But, but we know

    General CommentI agree with the terminally ill loved-one meaning as cliche_d has said above. But just expand a bit on the theory, I'm thinking that maybe it's a parent who's ill and they are hiding their illness away from their children. The bit at the end, the But we know bit suggests that despite their parent's effort to conceal the truth, they are more astute than they are given credit for, and know the truth
