Watch her as she flew
Deep within the blue
A day out from the county I see you

There's nothing you can do
Someone gently says to you
The doctors says that now it won't be long

Try and live up to the moment
And I hope that I don't blow it
What is it in me that she hears
It's just a song she likes
Her little arms around my neck
And the dying girl whispers in my ear

Tell me now can you feel it
I've been keeping company with a ghost
She comes to me like a piece of summer
She comes to me on the days when I need it most
Summer dies and nothing lasts forever
You were so fine
The way you stand up to your fears
Summer dies and it's just moments we have together
I give my bones
For you to get a few more years
For you and me
Oh Annie
More in life than trying to survive
Oh Annie

My boyfriend took pictures of me as I held you
I travel alone
And the loneliness brings me to tears
The summer dies
And there's just moments we have together
I give my bones for you to get a few more years
For you and me
Oh Annie
More in life than trying to survive
Oh Annie

Stronger than the hands that hold you
Sing along to the song on the radio
If I drank too much, then I'll admit there's just
This once I to forget hold on and days gone by

Tell me now, can you feel it?
I can't keep this all to myself
She's elegant
And she needs me

Years for you and me
Oh Annie
More in life than trying to survive
Oh Annie

Watch her as she flew
Deep within the blue
Watch her as she slips away from you
I'll keep fingers crossed always for you
