Sometimes the road of life becomes
unbearable and it seems easier to give up
than to go on. But you should always remember
that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
For every tear, you will smile, for every rainy day;
there will be a rainbow, and for every moment
of every day, forever and always there will be
someone there to love and confide in. I will
always be there for you, to carry you over
the rocky roads and lead you through the tunnels.
To share with you the smiles, the tears,
the rainy days and the rainbows.
Whenever you need me I will be there.

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready, in heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind, all those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,
For all life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.

So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart.

Döden är inget märkvärdigt.
Jag har bara smitit undan in i rummet bredvid.
Jag är jag och du är du.
Vad vi än var för varandra, är vi fortfarande.
Kalla mig med mitt vanliga namn,
prata med mig på det enkla sätt du alltid gjort.
