She's dreaming of flowers and dresses in white
while I thinking of shadows
and caskets closed tight.
She's dancing with angels
and singing her glee
while I'm choking on sorrow
and refusing to breathe
Through ballads of splendor
and bouquets of roses
I'm counting the pills
and doubling doses
She’s picked all the place mats and picked out a day
I'm counting down minutes till I'm finally 'ok'
She waits for the stars and makes dozens of wishes
I'm holding my wrists and counting the stitches
She is such a marvel, a future so bright
I’ll be surprised if I last through the night
She’s smiling for pictures and standing so high
I wonder if she'll even hear my goodbye
She's dreaming of roses
and dressed up in White
I'm finally peaceful with my casket sealed tight.
