lyrics

THE LAST WORD

I'm lying in this hospice
And I'm afraid
I hear familiar voices
Fading away

Have my sins
Come to this
Will I die here all alone?
Don't take me
I'm not ready
To face the ending on my own

I feel you take my hand
I'm overcome
If I had one more chance
I'd tell you that I love you

All of the sadness that you feel,
And all of the hatred, isn't real.
Only Love, that's what's left for you and I
What I wouldn't give if I could live
To see another day

Don't take me
I'm not ready
To face the ending on my own
Have my sins
Come to this
Will I die here all alone?
God save me
My family
Can't you hear their prayers?
Why take me
I'm not ready
I can't remember the last word

All the pain and suffering
Doesn't make a man a king
Death, now what will you bring
Will you take away the sting?

Hang a body on a cross
How can we gain from loss
The captain and the albatross
Both of them died in vain

I took a sacred oath
I took the best from both
Questioned authority
No power over me

In your quest for the last word
Remember what you just heard
Life can be so absurd
If you refuse to learn

That the last word is love
Though you'll try to deny it
Yes the last word is love
