Vanessa Carlton Annie Lyrics

Last updated: 11/20/2008 10:00:00 AM

Watch her as she flew
Deep within the blue
A day out from the county I.C.U.
There's nothing you can do
Someone gently says to you
The doctor says that now it won't be long
I try and live up 'til the moment and I hope that I don't blow it
And what is it in me that she hears?
It's just a song she likes
Little arms around my neck
And a 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

Well summer dies and nothing lasts forever
And you're so fine, the way you stand up to your fears
The summer dies and its just moments we have together
I'd give my bones for you to get a few more years
For you and I, oh Annie
More to 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 it's just moments we have together
I'd give my bones for you to get a few more years
For you and I, oh Annie
More to life than trying to survive, oh Annie.

Stronger than the hands that hold you
You sing along to the song on the radio
If I drank too much, then I am reckless
Just this once would you forgive this

So hold on, the days gone by
Tell me now can you feel it?
I can't keep this all to myself
She's elegant and she means it, no

Years for you and I, oh Annie
More to 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

Touching | Reviewer: Jenny | 1/12/2008

I love this song so much, Every time I'm in school i keep thinking about this song and just love 2 sing it and it makes me think of my family whenever they get sick



Sorrowful beauty | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/13/2007

A cousin of mine just lost a child to cancer... In my mind, I heard her softly crooning along to the beautiful lyrics of this song and replacing the name Annie with her son's name... Colby. She would give anything in the world to have more days with her precious son and this song speaks to everyone who has ever expereinced the loss of a child, filling in a little piece of the emptiness that a child's illness or death leaves.



Soul touching song | Reviewer: Jade | 10/29/2007

this song really paints a sadness in me that I feel for all my lost loved ones. Brings me closer to them at heart everytime I sing along.
