lyrics

Verse 1:
Now this one starts under a fine bliss
With happiness and a divine kiss
A loving home including three kids
When all was well before the sickness
But this one comes with an affliction
Consulted doctor with condition
And he found cancer in position
Now he brings dreadful premonition
Now I don’t know from superstition
Or times when a soul has to turn to religion
But this young woman was faced with decision
How to fight in a war of attrition
And how to cope
And how to try
And how to reach
And how to rise
And how to live with her remaining time
And how to hope for something she can’t find
Never in her mind
Ever did it climb to a place where her will was resigned
Faith so high they could slow down time
And turn these years to an endless shrine
But this is certainly a misfit
And it sure hurts to have to heed it
Cuz she don’t need no one’s forgiveness
She just needs something to fix this


Chorus:
I know you’re worried
Don’t be afraid
I’ve always loved you
I’ll always love you

You’re pain it makes my body hurt
You need to know
I’ve always loved you
I’ll always love you


Verse 2:
Like waking up in a dream
And finding it’s quite a new scene
With a hairless head and a grief so mean
And a sense of a used reprieve
Cuz his wife’s now frail and she’s far too lean
And no one’s coming to intervene
No one sure with a cure to be received
And she is ready to be relieved
Now there’s nothing left to do but breathe
Now I can’t speak from in the family
Or feign like I know firsthand their misery
Cuz how could a father just ignore
His family of five will soon become four
And how does a woman tell her husband to hold on
When times get tough and she’s left and long gone
How does a mother tell her daughter to be strong
For two younger brothers who have shuddered to move on
And it’s so damn heavy the weight’s on
It’s too unsteady to ride on
But he’s determined to pull through this terminal worldview
And come out it brand new
And no husband should have to bury you
Cuz we all know that it can bury you
Your warmth is felt and we do cherish you
Know you’re in our hearts


Chorus:
I know you’re worried
Don’t be afraid
I’ve always loved you
I’ll always love you

You’re pain it makes my body hurt
You need to know
I’ve always loved you
I’ll always love you

I know you’re worried
Don’t be afraid
I will always love you
And I hear your call

Remember me…
