I always thought there would be more time
Just another illusion in my mind
Beginnings are easy, endings unforeseen
I need to appreciate the days in between
Time is a dirty rotten thief
The thought you won’t be here is beyond belief

I’ve read the statistics, studied the medical arts
The brain can absorb it, but not the heart
Some things I can’t even say out loud, would be a kinahora
Like opening a box that belonged to pandora
Is the road ahead, paved with only pain and grief?
The thought you won’t be here is beyond belief

Going thru those stages, denial anger bargaining depression
I have none of the answers, not even sure of the question

Where does somebody go, when they’re in your DNA
Are they ever really gone, or does part of them stay?
Nice thought to hold on to, but its just not enough
Cause that journey thru hell is going to be rough
Why does the goddamn tree of life have to shed this particular leaf?
The thought you won’t be here is beyond belief
