Lyrics

Don’t go yet
The night is still young
Don’t have to talk
Just give me a sign

Don’t leave
When the journey is not done
Just squeeze my hand
And don’t let it go

I would walk through fire
Just to save your skin
I would pay any price
To see you win

Over life and death
I would lay it all down
To save your last breath
If it would make you well

They say a dog
Won’t chew it’s way
To break free of the trap
Hey man, why don’t you come back?

Your eyes are closed
But I know you are still there
Are you watching me now?
You know I would go anywhere

I would walk through fire
Just to save your skin
I would pay any price
Just to see you win

Over life and death
I would lay it all down
If I could save your last breath
If it would make you well

And I would walk through fire
Just to save your skin
I would pay any price
Just to see you win

Over life and death
Well I’d lay it all down
Just to save your last breath
If it would make you well

I would walk through fire
Just to save your skin
I would pay any price
Just to see you win

Over life and death
I would lay it all down
Just to save your last breath
If it would make you well
