How can i help
how do I hold on
because i cant be strong
im weak and i know
that i have to let go
yet I can't find it inside
to watch her die

i must do something
but you say don't move
how can i do that
she is walking away
im sitting where you told me
but screaming that she stay

what do i have to do
in order that she find you
what can i say
so she doesn't push you away

i sit and i pray
pray that she stays alive
because i can't just sit
and watch her
watch her walk away
and choose to die

she is closer to me than life or breath
yet farther from you she is getting yet

Im screaming at you
don't let her leave
you say don't worry daughter
I have something up my sleeve
but what that is I can't see
and you just wont tell me
and all this while
shes walking away with a smile

I am dying inside
as I watch her go
and everytime i want to get her
you say no

trying i am
to see what you see
but alas I cannot
so please tell me
is she safe in the end
will i see her again

God I need to trust
this i know
but it is so hard
to just let go
like a train wreck i watch
i can't turn away
she is my baby sis
and shes walking away
