While You Are MineHe said:
"I'm giving up, I'm dying alone;

Reach out your hand and get pushed away.
Life is lonely so why should I stay?
Life is lonely, you're right about that.
We love 'til we can't and can't go back.
We flicker, then shine, then disappear.
Only you and I'll know we were here.
So let's sing 'Lay Me Down'

I count my stars and sing these bars and call each breath a gift.
