Written about the death of Samantha's mother late in 2008 after a long battle with lung cancer.


Half a breath and half closed lids
Its time to go
Its time to quit
Bloodshot and yellow and far away
I tried to be strong

Hold on
Time is not right for you to leave
Hold on
Stay a while and comfort me

You held on just like I asked
A noble cause that’s lost it’s charm
Bloodshot and yellow and far away
When you’re gone, will this vision stay?

Hold on
Time is not right for you to leave
Hold on
Stay a while and comfort me

We make decisions we live and learn to rue
But when life calls time
And the fight begins
It should come as no surprise a broken heart never wins

We’ve been there when the time has come
Husband, brother, daughter and a son
Bloodshot and yellow and far away
You were gone
But never alone
Your memory lives on

Go on
No more pain, just sweet relief
Go on
You don’t have to comfort me
