(Whispered)

To think that there may be a time-bomb ticking inside of me,

To think it's very real even though it can't be seen…

I don't know how to react, it's overwhelmingly scary.

I don't even wanna think about what this could mean…

Verse 1

I don't know how long I have got,

I'm afraid to find out.

Ignorance is truly bliss, they're right,

There's comfort in this doubt.

Pre-chorus 1

But there are so many things left to say,

And so many memories from yesterday.

Chorus

When I'm not around,

Don't be alarmed at the slightest sound.

Don't think it's me blowing with the wind,

Startling you by ruffling things.

When I'm not around,

Don't hallucinate a shadow on the ground

And think it's me lurking around the house

To see what feelings I may arouse.

Verse 2

I love living in denial, I hate to think

And to talk about it.

I don't want anybody's pity, I just

Wanna cry and shout shit.

Pre-chorus 2

But there are so many things left to say,

Why does time always have to fly away?

Chorus

When I'm not around,

Don't be alarmed at the slightest sound.

Don't think it's me blowing with the wind,

Startling you by ruffling things.

When I'm not around,

Don't hallucinate a shadow on the ground

And think it's me lurking around the house

To see what feelings I may arouse.

Bridge

Don't ask me my last thoughts,

I have to say lots and lots.

So glad I've been saying them all the time all my life…

There's nothing else to say before you

Put my rock cold body in the resting chamber…

Just one last thing, just remember-

Chorus

When I'm not around,

Don't be alarmed at the slightest sound.

Don't think it's me blowing with the wind,

Startling you by ruffling things.

When I'm not around,

Don't hallucinate a shadow on the ground

And think it's me lurking around the house

To see what feelings I may arouse.

When I'm gone,

I really won't be around honey, I'm sorry.
