Song Description

To sum up, the song is about being with someone you love during the end of their life, at that moment when they need to let go. It's the conflict of not wanting them to leave you, and making peace with the fact that you have no control over their body. Even though the subject matter is intense, I hope people will still connect to the universal experience in the lyric.

Story Behind the Song

Written after the loss of a loved one.

Lyrics

Afraid to sleep, afraid to breathe
One more hardship to conceive
There's a shadow moving over me
So much for life's vanities

You're in every corner of the house
Drifting in and drifting out
Little brother, little sun
Caught in wars that can't be won

Don't want to let you go
Can you please stay
I need you here
Just one more day

Powers that be do as they please
But I'm making peace with your disease
If I could I crush a thousand stones
I'd feed cure into to your bones

Dream in star light little son
Can't undo what has been done
Hold you near me as I pray
Until your spirit turns away

All night crying
I?m haunted by you
All night crying
What more can I do

Don't want to let you go
Can you please stay
I need you here
Just one more day

"You've got to let me go boy
I cannot stay
My things are all packed
And I'm leaving today"
