I couldn't go now

I'm lying still in my bed
Suddenly aware of the weight of my head
I feel a trembling in my fingers
Will I go to sleep now, or even further away?
Am I to say goodbye now?
Now that my eyes have finally seen

How beautiful this world is
with its' cooling water, soft winds and burning fire
Could I leave all this behind?
In a heartbeat, no more heartbeats
Oh, I couldn't go now, no I couldn't go now

Tears are streaming down my cheeks
On warmth and skin I deeply value
You tell me not to be afraid
That I will be allright
That I won't say goodbye just yet
I still have years to live and see

How beautiful this world is
With you in it, someone like you in it
Could I leave all this behind?
In a heartbeat, no more heartbeats
Oh I couldn't go now, no I couldn't go now

Who decides when your life comes to its' end
When you leave the rest with wounds impossible to mend
Is it fate, or chance, or God, or man
That makes us cease to breathe, before we've learned how to be
Will some of us has time enough
Three billion heartbeats, is that time enough to see

How beautiful this world is
The glory, our minds, our stories
Someday I'll leave it all behind
In a heartbeat, then no more heartbeats
But I, I couldn't go now, I couldn't just yet

No, I couldn't go now, I couldn't go now
