lyrics

What do you do when half of you
Is lying motionless in your arms
What can you think when you're on the brink
Of sinking in your grief
I've never been in a situation
Where humor can't be found
I will never be ready for that
Please flip the time-turner around

And take me back to the days when my sentences were complete
Back to the days when you and I found the funny in everything
You said you were alright, Fred, why did you lie?
Now I'm left to go through life without you by my side

If you really had to go
I'm glad that it was with a laugh
Positive till the very end, yeah
I can find some comfort in that
I like to think that we're still identical
Even though we're apart
'Cause you will never be truly gone
You live on in our hearts
But I still wanna go

Back to the days when my sentences were complete
Back to the days when you and I found the funny in everything
You said you were alright, Fred, why did you lie?
Now I'm left to go through life without you by my side

You said that you were alright
That you would survive, that you were okay
But I still had to watch that ghost of a smile fade

So take me back to the days when my sentences were complete

Back to the days when I had you by my side
Back to the days when our lives seemed miles wide
You said you were okay, Fred, why did you die?
Never thought I'd have to say goodbye
Goodbye
