Losin' the battle alone you crie-ied
You let it end with no shame
Anger insi-i-i-i-i-ide, I watched you fade away-ay
Now you're gone away

In silence evermore-ore-ore
Somethin' we all will lear-earn
Pea-ea-ea-eace it will be-ee-ee-ee-ee

In thi-is world when your time ha-as come
(When your time has co-ome)
You face all your fears, you stand alo-o-one

There's a place in my hear-eart
I will never forget you-ou
Unassumin' in your ways, you inspired
But you gave it everything you had
So bra-ave, so stro-o-o-ong
Oh, Yeah you fought it
You just wouldn't let it bring you dow-ow-own
So my friend I, say goodbye now
And until we meet agai-ai-ain
Rest in pea-ea-eace, rest in pea-ea-eace

In thi-is world when your time has come
(When your time has come)
You face all your fears (you face all your fears)
You stand alo-one (lo-o-one)

I believe (I believe in), in the kingdom of lo-ove
(In the kingdom of lo-o-o-ove, of lo-o-ove)

Oh Millie, I say goodbye to you my frie-ie-iend
Millie, Uh-uh-uh, yeah until we meet agai-ai-ain
Rest in pea-ea-eace, rest in pea-ea-eace
Rest in peace...

In thi-is world (in this wor-orld)
When your time has come (when your time has come)
You face all your fears (face all your fears)
You stand alo-o-one (o-o-o-one)

I believe (I believe, yes I do) in the kingdom of love
( Kingdom of lo-o-o-o-ove) (ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh)
Millie (Ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh)
Goodbye-ye (ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh) Goodbye-ye
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah [fade]

    For all you's out there who get to the bottom of the song, and think: "R.I.P Katie Chapple? Who the hell is that?!" Well... Katie Chapple is my mum, and this is a song we dedicated to her at her funeral July of last year. She died of cancer, and I relate to this song a lot. "Losin' the battle alone you cried You let it end with no shame Anger inside, I watched you fade away Now you're gone away" Having the cancer, she was losing the "battle", the battle to stay alive. When the battle ended, she showed no shame. She was angry, angry at everything, angry at the cancer, the doctors, everyone. Even though it was that night in July that she actuaklly died, but she had been fading away for a while until she finally let go. Then I think the song explains how everyone has their turn to die, and when it happens, you "Face All Your Fears & Stand Alone" This song makes me cry everytime I hear it. It was played at her funeral, and I put it on my iPod with all my emo/hardcore shit, and I probably listen to it just as often as my songs. The other day, I played this song about 5 times down at the cemetary when I went to see my mum's grave after school (I'm in grade 9 by the way). I bet this song is very meaningful to alot of you guys out there too. If you love this song -- comment on it! xxx

    I agree with your comments, but I personally find your additional last line offensive. This was written by Jon Stevens, lead singer of Noiseworks, about the passing of his mother. This song is absolutely amazing, as are many other songs on the Touch album by Noiseworks, as well as other albums. A great 80s Aussie rock band, highly recomended to anyone who likes 80s rock.. Rest In Peace Millie, thanksyou to Jon Stevens and Noiseworks for such an amazing, emotional song. Regards, Ben Ogle
