Until I Die

I wish I could speak
I wish I could breathe
I wish I could
Sing you a song
You could never forget
My dear

I wish I had talent
I wish I had potential
I wish I could
Make this guitar
Strum its strings
In perfect melody
For you

But if all I can do is write
Then I'll write
Until the day I die

Until I die...

Sitting here
4 a.m.
The world lays silent
Save for my pen
Dancing on paper for you

I wish life was simple
I wish this was easy
I wish I could
Take all your pain away

I'm not perfect
We'll never be perfect
But I hope we'll both find
Someone
Someday

And if all I can do is write
Then I'll write
Until the day I die

Until I die...

The sun isn't up just yet
The world still sleeps
Ink as black as your eyes
Maybe I can see your face
If I stare long enough

Until I die
I'll keep writing
