How Do You Plead?

I sometimes think it's love

But I sometimes doubt it's true.

I tell myself that it's me

But deep down, I know it's you.

I don't know why I do it

Maybe it's 'cos I'm afraid

Of losing a best friend

But I got debts, need to be paid.


But not like this

Not like this

With Death knocking on my door

Give me time

To get a dime

I'd pay it now but I'm too poor


Cos I've exhausted all my savings

In an attempt to save you

Bet you're tired of my ravings

But there ain't much I can do

I don't know why I do it

Maybe it's 'cos I'm afraid

Of losing a best friend

But your debts need to get paid.


So, Death, take me!

Please... take me.

She's an innocent young soul.

Give her time

Hear my rhyme

Please, Death, have some self-control


I know it's your first instinct

To kill all that you see

But I'm begging you, don't take her

If you have to, just take me

She doesn't need to die

She is not the one to blame

So take me along instead.

Either way, you've won this game.

I'm begging you, I'm pleading

Just be heading on your way.

If you need a soul, I'm willing

But only if you let her stay.


Turn around,

Turn around

Please, Death, just leave us in peace

Walk away

Leave today

Find someone else to make deceased.
