lyrics

Oh it’s hard to breathe when you’re dying
There’s a pain in my chest but you’re holding my hand
Lying awake
Watch the sun set with you for the very last time

Don’t let me close my eyes

Don’t let me go now
I don’t know what I’ll see
Oh true believer
Won’t you stay here with me
And don’t let me fly away

Oh the pictures on the dresser
Are faded like the memories
Tell me those stories of Jesus
You tried to tell me so many times

Don’t turn your head love don’t cry

Don’t let me go now
I don’t know what I’ll see
Oh true believer
Won’t you stay here with me
And don’t let me fly away

Hold on as tight as you can
Hold on as tight as you can
Hold on as tight as you can

And don’t let me go now
I don’t know what I’ll see
Oh true believer
Won’t you stay here with me
And teach me to fly away
