Thirteen

"When it all falls, will you still be there?"

When it all falls can I count on you to be there?

Will you leave me all alone to die in the chaos that unfolds?

"When it all falls, will you still be there?"

I want to believe I can count on you to be there.

I hope that you will stay and wait with me.

And if the chaos blows the winds of misfortune,

At least I can say that I had you right beside me.

"I had you beside me."

In the end I believe that's all that I truly need.

To know at least one person decided to stand with me.

So let's stand here, together, and watch as time ignites the flame.

And when the ember has risen or when ashes fall in a forbidden spiral,

I hope you will still be here with me.

"Still be here with me."

"With me …"

"… Always …"
