lyrics

i never thought i'd see the day
i finally said goodbye before you went away
and i awoke to see you, and didn't hear a sound
can't stand to see the faces gathered all around

you're running for cover
you're taking no others
they're coming to steal you
replace what's inside of

i tried to give you up and though you let me down
the gravity remains the same
and i'll be holding on, to all the memories when life was good
and mattered something to you

you're running for cover
you're taking no others
they're coming to steal you
replace what's inside of

i tried to give you up and though you let me down
the gravity remains the same
and even though you're gone, another day will come
and the piece you left with me a peace for me and you

you're running for cover
you're taking no others
they're coming to steal you
replace what's inside of

i couldn't see you through this
and i wouldn't help you to it
but now there's just one question
was it all really worth the price
were you afraid of living
while you were slowly dying
i couldn't see you through this, or stand by your side and watch the light
just fade out from your eyes

but now you're gone, and i am left with all this

you're running for cover
you're taking no others
they're coming to steal you
replace what's inside of
