Oath

by Nick
(Rush Medical Center)

### lines marked * are scream lines
### lines marked - are clear lines
### / is a pause

(intro)
-There is a stroke of lightning/ burnt into my eyes
-staring at your picture/ as the rain pours from the skies
-Mother can you hear me/ i feel i have just so much to say
-the lessons that you taught me will never fade away

*and It will be okay
-it will be okay
-I know you lived a hard life/ but you did it any way
*And i will be SAVED
-i will be saved
-by the light you breathed into my life/ its burning to this day
*and come what may
-come what may
-the dreams you wished for me they won't be lost along the way


-Ages ago you told me i would never be alone
-that i would find one true love to forever share my home
-and now i have my family/ and a place to call my own
-and your lifelong example will be my only holy tome.


-There's a phrase we always uttered, as you were lying in that bed
-words we could put a lie to, but made our selves believe instead
(silence)

*mom, you're gunna be okay
-it will be okay
-The memory of your laughter will carry past this day
*And we will be SAVED
-we will be saved
-and with this light you breathed into my life/ i will lead the way
*and come what may
-come what may
-this is my oath to you/ your path is one from which i will never stray.
(end)
