Dreams! i dreamt of you.
Songs! i sang of you.
Tales, i told of you.
Yet, speaks of your tenderness all year.

War into my heart.
Fire on my mind.
Quark in my head.
My senses a slowpoke.
You perfected all without a goodbye.

Love to stop the dreams.
Can't stop the songs.
Each day comes new tales.
Memories refuses to be buried in your grave.

Emyo: Dreams! i dreamt of you.

Can't stop the songs.

Memories refuses to be buried in your grave.

Somebody asked: You're a nurse?!

Rzzz

That's cool,
I wanted to do that when I was a kid.
How much do you make?"

The nurse replied, How much do I make?
...I can make holding your hand
Seem like the most important thing in the world when you're scared
I can make your child breathe if they stop
I can help your father survive a heart attack
I can make myself get up at 5AM
to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live

I work all day to save the lives of strangers
I make my family wait for dinner
until I know your family member is taken care of
I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure
everything I did for your wife today is charted
I make myself work weekends and holidays
because people don't just get sick Monday through Friday

Today, I might save your life
How much do I make?

All I know is
I make a difference.
