You're Not Dead

Your image dances in my head Each night you climb into my bed We have no dreams – we never sleep Eternity is ours to keep Your lips are cold – your breath is still You understand the way I feel We share our thoughts – we laugh and cry Together we can never die They say you’ve gone – but can’t they see You’re always right here next to me They say I’m mad – but that’s because They only see what never was The empty spaces fill the page Their anti-stares fill me with rage What do they know – why should I care I feel your glow – you’re always there You’re with me every single day I need you now – you're here to stay We shared our lives – You own my soul Together we have paid the toll We no longer sit and count the days Coz time is just a passing phase Your stone forever stays unread You'll always live inside my head.
