It's the middle of the night

And something just doesn't feel right

I get up from the bed but when I'm this tired it's a little hard

Finally I get to the window & see that you're in the backyard

-

Soon I begin to run as I pray in rhyme

Running in hope that I'll get to you in time

But I know I'll just keep running as you wait

Because already I'm too late

-

This has to be a joke it must

Because you couldn't have done this to all of us

When I see you I collapse & fall

Knowing I have to make that call

-

Soon I begin to run as I pray in rhyme

Running in hope that I'll get to you in time

But I know I'll just keep running as you wait

Because already I'm too late

-

I sit here now

Waiting for those who will take you to show

I can hear the sirens but I know they're too late

I know because I was right here & I was too late

-

Soon I begin to run as I pray in rhyme

Running in hope that I'll get to you in time

But I know I'll just keep running as you wait

Because already I'm too late
