His hands are clenched
His knuckles white
He got a gun
And gave up the fight

When I found out
I couldn't even cry
Well I am now
And I'm tryin' to figure out why

I'll save it for you
You save me from me
And the hole in my head I can see
Tell her I love her

Tell the kids that I loved them
Oh, it's a bad dream
I've got only time
Yeah, it's a bad dream

I've got only time
You know it's a bad dream
I've got only time

I wish it was a bad dream
I wish it was a bad dream
'Cause it's gonna hurt a long time, yeah
He lies awake

With saddened eyes
Sleeping babies
Keeping him alive
I'll save it for you

You save me from me
And the hole in my head I can see
Tell her I love her
Tell the kids that I loved them

Oh, it's a bad dream
I've got only time
Yeah, it's a bad dream
I've got only time

You know it's just a bad dream
I've got only time
I wish it was a bad dream
I've got only time

I wish it was a bad dream
'Cause it's gonna hurt a long time, yeah
