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...

    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.

    I just starting to get into MCR and this is definitely one of my favourite songs. It makes me cry, but it's amazing.

    wow... Yea what can you really say?...

    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...

    The second I finished listening to this song, I had to repeat it. It is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard

    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..
