Lyrics

You’re the one that visits me

The one who knows my name

I pray that you won’t ever leave

You relieve my pain

Each day I see but don’t comprehend

I eat but do not taste

I speak but make no sense at all

From a nightmare I won’t wake 

 

Life goes by, moments appear

They pass and deliquesce

Still it’s kind of you to sit with me

And share in my distress

 

When anger tries to burn you up

When hatred makes you small

When pride and vanity drive you away

Love will cushion the fall

Stay with me, stay awhile

Hold my hand tonight

That’s all I need, that’s all I need

As we share this long goodbye

 

Life goes by, moments appear

They pass and deliquesce

Still it’s kind of you to sit with me

And share in my distress
