Nothing to Say, Nothing to Do

He sits alone in his chair,
I'm feeling so helpless.
Does God even Care?

*Chorus*
There's nothing to say,
nothing to do.
You say your okay,
but it's not true.
Why do you say your fine,
when your not?
Using all the strength you've got.

Your so frail and so weak,
you can barely stand.
Your face and sunken cheek,
yours skins like sand.

I try oh I try,
I sit and take your hand.
As you weep and you cry,
while still trying to be a man.

*Chorus*
There's nothing to say,
nothing to do.
You say your okay,
but it's not true.
Why do you say your fine,
when your not?
Using all the strength you've got.

Every morning I wake,
I can hear you sick in the next room.
I can't stand as I cry and I shake,
Will this ever end anytime soon?

'He's lived his life great,
he's done nothing wrong,
for goodness sake!
Hear my plea, hear my song.
Set him free from this pain,
help him please!
Lift him out of the pouring rain.'

*Chorus* (changed)
There's nothing I can do,
nothing I can say.
I tell people I'm okay,
but if they only knew.
I say I'm fine,
when I know I'm not.
Using all the strength that I've got.
