I got the call on that October night

From your voice I could tell you'd given up the fight

Still I can't believe that could ever happen to you

Still I'm unsure of what I'm supposed to do

-

I told you I couldn't handle losing you

You said in some ways I'd never have to

But this was one place where you had no control

And that you felt it was your time to go

-

I tried to tell you all the things I never said

And still each word echoes in my head

You told me to be strong but that's an impossibility

When this is how you've left me

-

I told you I couldn't handle losing you

You said in some ways I'd never have to

But this was one place where you had no control

And that you felt it was your time to go

-

I knew I'd heard your last breath being sighed

In the instant just before you died

I fell hard to my knees

As I cried out don't leave me please

-

I told you I couldn't handle losing you

You said in some ways I'd never have to

But this was one place where you had no control

And that you felt it was your time to go
