lyrics

Hasten to my side
For I am not well
I want to see your face
One last time

I'll be in my bed
Waiting under cold sheets
You will not get here
A moment too soon

Come to my side
Without ruth
And come with less belief
In a balancing of books

You know I love you
And I'm glad that you were mine
I wish things were different
But I just can't stay

I'll tell you it's okay
But now what I say
Is closer to real
Than the way we all feel

Let your heart be stony
And seek not a repose
But hide behind a vale
And keep my memory close

You know I love you
And I'm glad that you were mine
I wish things were different
But I just can't stay

The dream I came to you in
I meant what I said
I didn't take good care
And I hope you can forgive

You know I love you
And I'm glad that you were mine
I wish things were different
But I just can't stay
