My Deadly Words

Lying on my bed
With my shaking hands
my trembling eyes
and my heavy head.

Lying there waiting
Waiting for my hands to close
my eyes to shut
and my head to fall

I'll say only but one thing
Goodbye to all and to all a happy life.

But as my shaking hands close
my trembling eyes shut
and my heavy head falls
I remember...

I didn't get a chance to say
Goodbye,

Goodbye to my love

Goodbye!
