I won't try to bring you down about my suicide
Got no need to understand about my big surprise
I won't beg to hang you up about my love of life
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

I am writing you a letter, getting better
Can I see you when
All the lights go out together, blame the weather?
Yeah, the cold again

In the darkness for a second
I am sure I see them smiling then
I feel them calling me
Yeah, they are calling me

And I am falling through the stars
(You remember now?)
Yeah, I am falling in their arms
(You remember how?)

Oh, I am falling through the skies
(You remember this?)
I am falling in their eyes
(You remember the kiss?)

I won't try to pull you in about my sacrifice
Makes no sense to get upset about the other side
I won't beg to put you out about my right to die
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

I am calling you at midnight feeling alright
Can I tell you when
On the line no sound but my words?
Must be night birds on the wire again

In the silence for a second
I am sure I hear them laughing then
I feel them calling me
Yeah, they are calling me

And I am falling through the stars
(You remember now?)
Yeah, I am falling in their arms
(You remember how?)

Oh, I am falling through the skies
(You remember this?)
I am falling in their eyes
(You remember our kiss?)

We know they said
You're holding on to nothing left of something gone
We know they said
In letting go of fear and dread and all you know

You'll lose the need of certainty
And make believe eternity
To find the true reality
In beautiful infinity

But I won't try to bring you down about my suicide
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why
