"...in the end, you've got to become the change you want to see in the world."

Verse 1
Just listen
To the silent tears falling.
Just feel it,
The beating sound of my heart.

Verse 2
I’m waiting
For you to move your fingers.
If you need me,
I will do all the work.

I won’t let you go,
Hold your hand,
Hold it tight.
I won’t let you fall again.

Love will bring you home,
Guide the way
To your heart
To beat again.

Verse 3
Just listen
Open your ears to my dying plea.
Just remember
The kiss you gave to me.


I’m sorry for all the things I did.
I’m praying that you will live.
I’m hoping that your strength will carry through.
‘Cause maybe then your eyes will open soon.

(Chorus +:
I won’t let you slip
Through the cracks
Like the blood that slipped
Through my fingers

I won’t let you die
Here alone
‘Cause you’re taking with you
A piece of me.

(Repeat first 2 lines of Verse 1)

The author's comments:
He's in a coma and I want him to wake up because I love him, because I care, because if he dies I'll be left to a dying heart. If he just listens to me, maybe I can motivate him enough to wake up. (originally with piano music)
