and when I close my eyes this one last time
these words will remain on my tongue
I daren't speak them for fear to lose them
I'll hold them dear and near to me
and when my last breath relieves me
I'll be set free of breathing
memory won't cease me though
and you'll never leave me
while I drift to my eternal slumber
safe where I can't think
I needn't hear the words
which forcefully drove me here
to a land where I feel safe alone
in my head where I reside
where the only memories to plague me
are the ones I choose myself
and these words will remain on my lips
I daren't speak them should I then lose them
one day to you I'll deliver them
when living becomes enough
