Breathe it out, close your eyes
It's finally taking over
Silence falls in the room
I wanna keep this moment
Like a bottle of perfume

‘Cause I'm terrified
That those wrinkles by your eyes
Will become blurry lines
In a couple of years from now
When I'm thinking of your face
And suddenly it fades from me

Fifteen good years
We couldn't be much closer
But if you're gone, and I'm here
Am I just somebody's daughter, now?

Your heart is slowing down
Like a train pulling in to the station
I'm about as helpless as
Those empty bottles of medication

And there'll come a time
When I'm dressed in white
And the space by my side
Should've been filled by you
But I'll be thinking of your face
And hoping that you're thinking of me, too

Fifteen good years
We couldn't be much closer
But if you're gone and I'm here
Am I just somebody's daughter, now?

You gave me life
Guess I thought you'd be immortal
Those Brisbane lights
They're shining for you
Your lungs are black
Your body's fading grey
But everything is blinding me, now

Fifteen good years
We couldn't be much closer
But if you're gone, and I'm here
Am I just somebody's daughter?

Fifteen good years
Those Brisbane lights
They're shining for you
But if you're gone, and I'm here
Am I just somebody's daughter, now?
