I lay here in deep pain 

I wait for someone to rescue me

but know such thoughts are in vain

But, I still pray

As I fade away

 

I suddenly feel the air drop several degrees

No, thats my body that has gotten colder

As if progressive as a horrid disease

And although I'm young, I suddenly feel older

But, I still pray

As I fade away

 

I won't believe it has come to this

I refuse to believe that I'm dying

Although I unwillingly wait death's kiss

I wish I was lying

But I still pray

as I fade away

 

I begin to come to grasp with reality 

that my time is almost up

and time more and more weakens my mortality

it may be corrupt

But I still pray

As I fade away

 

Its now harder to breathe

I try to hang on to any ounce of air that I can

I now accept the fact that I must leave

My complexion is no longer as tan

But I still pray 

As I fade away

 

I can feel my heart slowing down

My vision and hearing have become weak

Oh, how i wish I could have been found

How I wish I could still speak

But I still pray

As I fade....away
