[Verse 1]
All the stories my father told,
They spoke of your golden heart.
Now the air in the room is cold,
As your memories fall apart.

[Pre-Chorus]
You fear the silence,
So I keep the words coming.
You only remember that
Once all the clocks stop running,
We might expect it
But my heart's still filled with dread.
And words I never said,
Words I never said.

[Chorus]
Give me strength to see you weak,
'Cause I can't bear to let you leave.
I know you're tired, but please don't sleep,
'Cause I can't bear to let you leave.

[Verse 2]
You've been claimed by your suffering,
Sinking deeper in your pain.
If you made a recovery,
Could you ever be the same?

[Pre-Chorus]
You fear the silence,
So I keep the words coming.
You only remember that
Once all the clocks stop running,
We might expect it
But my heart's still filled with dread.
And words I never said,
Words I never said.

[Chorus]
Give me strength to see you weak,
'Cause I can't bear to let you leave.
I know you're tired, but please don't sleep,
'Cause I can't bear to let you leave.

[Hook]
I tower over your hospital bed,
Like you used to with me.
I tower over your hospital bed,
Like you used to...

[Bridge]
Strength to see you weak,
'Cause I can't bear to let you leave.

[Outro]
Give me strength to see you weak,
'Cause I can't bear to let you leave.
I know you're tired, but please don't sleep,
'Cause I can't bear to let you, bear to let you leave.
