One day death came knocking on my door
But I was not ready for death

Please go knock on someone elseโ€™s door I yelled
As I struggled to take another breath

It was then that I had made up my mind
Fight like hell
Because I was not ready to leave everything behind

As I eventually pulled myself from the smoky car
Strangers quickly became caretakers that caught my fall
And I was not afraid anymore
Because death had simply checked in on me then hadย moved along
