Lay By Me When I Close My Eyes


This is for the people I love who have already passed away. I wish I have been closer to you: Lolos and Lolas, back when you were still alive.

Bound inside this cold, white room
Full of devices that I see
They’re attached to me

Frequent visits and fragrant blossoms
They come with hopes and smiles
But leave with tears in their eyes

The sun shines through the window
Into my hands and upon your face
You held onto me, tightly

I wipe the tears off of your face
There’s nothing to worry about
I’m just feeling a little bit tired

So I close my eyes.
How weird, I see the light.
Then I hear you crying.
What’s wrong?
There’s nothing to worry about,
I’m just feeling a little bit sleepy.
