Don’t say anything, be quiet. I know that silence;
don’t say words that it takes away my breath.
 
I just ask you for a second chance;
I know, I made a lot mistakes in the past.
 
I may not have been a good husband,
a better father, or a good Christian.
 
Just a second chance.
 
I've remembered, as if I often offended you;
one of those, when I drove my car such like a crazy;
suddenly a strident impact, and you closer than me.
 
Or, that party night, more liquor than joys;
a fight begun among screams and cries,
you were closer than me, once again.
 
I know, you are here, I ask you for a second chance;
I would like to think, it is a dream,
and if someone wake me up to rap on the door,
and ask me who I’m talking with;
I would answer. It’s the death, who is walking away.
