Before I close my eyes for the last time

And draw my final breath into my lungs,

I would like to see your face one last time

And hope it's not painful when it comes

 

Before I drift off to sleep one last time

I'll pour a drink and light a cigarette,

I'll look back fondly at all our memories

And pass away without regret

 

Before I close the curtains one last time

And eat the last forkful from my plate,

I would like to see your beautiful eyes

And I'll happily face my fate

 

Before I hear the birds sing for the last time

And children playing in the local park,

I'd like to hear you laughing just one more time

And hope the place I'm off to isn't dark

 

Before I feel my heartbeat for the last time

I'd like to feel your skin against my face,

I'd like to hear you tell me how you love me

And happily I'll reach that better place

 

Before my blood stops flowing for the last time

I'd like to feel your head upon my chest,

I'd like to say how good it felt to love you

And you can lay me in the ground to rest
