Song lyrics
Turn away,
If you could get me a drink
Of water cause my lips are chapped and faded
Call my aunt Marie
Help her gather all my things
and bury me
in all my favorite colors,
my sisters and my brothers, still,
I will not kiss you,
cause the hardest part of this,
is leaving you.

Now turn away,
cause I'm awful just to see
cause all my hair's abandoned all my body,
Oh, my agony,
know that I will never marry,
Baby, I'm just soggy from the chemo
but counting down the days to go.

It just ain't living
And I just hope you know
That if you say (if you say)
Goodbye to day (goodbye to day)
I'd ask you to be true (cause I'd ask you to be true)
Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you...

Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you...

It's actually quite a simplistic song, but they used it for the effect of emotion that it's supposed to convey, and it's so beautiful. tis' so sad but it used to convey the ideaof everything kind of coming slowly to a halt when you know you're going to die within a few days.

This song has really deep lyrics. I mean I love MCR and most of my friends hate it cause thy're EMO.. Whaterver. Anyway, they listen to the song and ask me who sing this song. Of course I said MCR and they were shocked. cause the song was really deep. That proves that MCR is a living legend and can make powerful songs. There's a gossip that Gerard hhas cancer, and a few months back my friend said he died!! Good thing it isn't true, he is going to have a concert in Indonesia.. Can't wait to see them

MCR.. Wow.. they are really amazing, the thought they put into this song really touched me, and although it makes me sad, i love it. it does remind me of my aunty and various relatives that died from cancer.. though i heard MCR said cancer was also meant to be a metaphore for something else so i guess it could be interpritated into something else too.

One of the best songs every but still so hard to listen to... The recorded version is great but the I love the live version better, you can really hear gerard putting his feeling in to it allmost looks like he crys....

Great song. A song you have to listen to if you dont...

This is my favourite song right now . Even if I cry when I hear it... That's probably the best thing about this song - that it makes you think.

I can't relate to cancer... But I can relate to this song because it's not just about cancer, it's also about caring for you relatives and "live your life while you can"... That's atleast how I think about this song...

In an interview the band did a while ago they mentined that cancer was a metaphor for something else. I just wondered if anyone knew what? I'm not very good at picking up themes and underlying meanings..

this songs good but well i think its sending the wrong message
how i see the song is he has cancer and hes ganna die
well if u have/had cancer and ur ganna die that means i should have been dead 8 years ago
i like the song theres nuthin wrong wif it but just because they had cancer doesnt mean there ganna die
hello im living proof
