Relay

Brought here in a body bag
I never thought it would end like this
in the middle of all excitement

I cannot think and I cannot speak
yet you know what I would say
so shut up now and listen to the words you’d hear

I’ll go my way if you let me go
my life was just a step on your ladder
I’ll go my way if you let me go
you’ve heard the words that I had to say, now
pass them on

I chose to hide my weaknesses
I played my cards like I always did
I would risk it all to win

I’m sorry I had to die like that
but I wanted leave with a grin on my face
I was full of hope even when I drew my last breath

I’ll go my way if you let me go
my life was just a step on your ladder
I’ll go my way if you let me go
you’ve heard the words that I had to say, now
pass them on

I sit alone by the fire
you showed me how to light it
