If you must wait, Wait for them here in my arms as I shake If you must weep, Do it right here in my bed as I sleep If you must mourn, my love Mourn with the moon and the stars up above If you must mourn, Don’t do it alone

If you must leave, Leave as though fire burns under your feet If you must speak, Speak every word as though it were unique If you must die, sweetheart Die knowing your life was my life’s best part And if you must die, Remember your life

You are You are Oh, you are You are Oh

If you must fight, Fight with yourself and your thoughts in the night If you must work, Work to leave some part of you on this earth If you must live, darling one,

Just live Just live Just live
