I was sitting on the edge of his bed Staring at the headlines on the paper He said, 'look at poor gene kelly I guess he won't be singing in the rain.'
Then we talked about the weather and the game Election day and things I can't remember But all that I could think of Was this would be the last time That we'd talk about anything You took away my heroes Can you take away my pain
Take away my pain Please don't let it rain Take away my pain I'm not frightened anymore I'll be knocking at your door
She was standing by the edge of his bed Staring at the message on their faces He said, 'what else can you do, babe? I guess I won't be coming home again.' They just took away all my promises Make them take away my pain
Take away my pain Please don't let it rain Take away my pain I'm not frightened anymore Just stay with me tonight I'm tired of this fight Soon I'll be knocking at your door
His final scene The actor bows And all those dreams Are gone somehow The crowd applauds The curtain falls There'll be no encore after all
I was sitting on the edge of my bed Staring at the paper through my tears It read, 'say goodbye to jesus' The world he left will never be the same You took away my hero Will you take away my pain
Take away my pain Let the cold inside Time to let it rain There's nothing left to hide Take away my pain I'm not frightened anymore I'm learning to survive Without you in my life Til you come knocking at my door...
