OK, here are the lyrics - somebody write music for them, quick! The poor things are suffering from lack of substance. Have a heart...

This isn’t what I signed up for
when I agreed to come.
I expected to be here
and to endure this life,
but I didn’t know...

I knew there would be sadness
but not this soul crushing grief.
I knew there would be joy
but not that it would be so brief.

I don’t know that I can endure
all that has been shown this long night;
I don’t know that I even want to try
because it’s now so hard to remember the light.

Oh lord, I wasn’t told
how I would cry –
I wasn’t warned
that I would want to die


Oh shine your light
down on me.
Give me hope
that we will be;
that in the end
it’s all worth
the pain and death
that comes from birth.

I knew I’d suffer
for what I’ve done.
I knew that in the end
my time would come.

But I didn’t know
to what extremes
the fates and gods would go
to make me scream.

Oh pour your love
down on me.
Let me know
that we will be;
That in the end
this is all worth
the pain and death
that’s due from birth.

I see the sun
and it causes pain.
I feel your heat,
but it’s not the same.

I knew you when
you were unknown.
I loved you then
and that love has only grown.

You were supposed to be my hero;
You were supposed to be the one.
But now I know you’re human;
Now I know what we’ve both done.

Send your faith
down to me.
Make me know
what we can be.
And that in the end
it is all of worth –
the pain and death
just brings new birth.

Look, all I said was "you are all I think about" and now you are writing poems about me.

I smell you everywhere.

hmmm, yeah...If by "writing poems about me", you mean "writing poems about someone who is totaly not me", then yes, yes that is what I have done.

yes dear, I know you are playing. No, you are not bumming me. And I did shower today, so I can't be THAT pungent.
