Every wound can be forgotten in the right light.


Verse: I cannot put into words how it felt to lose you
And I know it's hard to believe I'm rendered speechless
And even if it boils down to me wasting away thinking of you
I will do it in the blink of an eye and suffer the consequences

Hook: Lover, keep the light on as you walk out of the door
'Cause I'm going to be waiting up for you
And even though I know that you're never coming back
I know that I can imagine it...

Chorus: I am perfectly happy pretending
That our perfect love isn't ending
Even though, I know, you'd still be here if not for the final blow
I am perfectly happy with imagining
You and I together and having
The time of our lives, though now I sit here in silence, wondering
(What we could've been, are you wondering, too?)
Just know that death can't kill my love for you

Verse: That shallow breath that you held on to
Was the only thing that kept you with me for so long
And I am happy that you saved that last hollow breath for our last kiss
But, baby, I hate that you're missing this, I guess heaven only knows

Hook: That after you left I turned the light on
'Cause I would be eternally waiting up for you
And even though I knew you weren't coming back
I imagined it...

Chorus: I am perfectly happy pretending
That our perfect love isn't ending
Even though, I know, you'd still be here if not for the final blow
I am perfectly happy with imagining
You and I together and having
The time of our lives, though now I sit here in silence, wondering
(What we could've been, are you wondering, too?)
Just know that death can't kill my love for you

Bridge: I would gladly sacrifice everything I have
For another touch of your skin against my calve
Rising up to the spot on my stomach where you laid
Where we experienced what it's like to be one with the person who made it all okay

Hook: After you left I turned the light on
Got on my knees and asked God to give me another minute
And even though I wanted you to come back, even though I desperately wanted you to
I got up and turned the light off

Chorus: I am perfectly happy pretending
That our perfect love isn't ending
Even though, I know, you'd still be here if not for the final blow
I am perfectly happy with imagining
You and I together and having
The time of our lives, though now I sit here in silence, wondering
(What we could've been, are you wondering, too?)
Just know that death can't kill my love for you

I wanted to write a song from the point of view of someone who'd lost a lover to death. Tell me what you think please. I'd really love some feedback.
