Disciple Things Left Unsaid Lyrics

Last updated: 02/06/2012 10:00:00 AM

It's just a matter of time a few days ago
I saw you, you were fine
Remembering what you said
About the book you read
The one I got you
The Beginning of the End
Oh how we'd talk
For hours upon end
What I would give
Just to do it again
But you're lying there
In this hospital bed
Won't you open your eyes
And let's talk once again

If you fly away tonight
I want to tell you that I love you
I hope that you can hear me
I hope that you can feel me
If you fly away tonight
I want to tell you that I'm sorry
That I never told you
When we were face to face

Well I've been here all night
And I'm watching you
Breathe in and breathe out
Is it really you
Or just a machine
That's giving you life
And it's making it seem
That there could be hope
I could say to your face
If it weren't for you
That there would be no grace
That's covered my life
You took the time
To speak into my mind
And my heart
Words of life


So goodbye for now
And I'll see you again
Some way, somehow
When it's my time to go
to the other side
I'll hold you again
And melt at your smile
Now all I have
Are the ones that I'm with
And you taught me not
To take for granted
The time that we have
To show that we care
Speak into their minds
And their hearts
While they're here
And say I love you

Sad song to relate to | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/4/11

Soo a few days ago I saw my uncle he was just fine.. 2 days ago I find out that my uncle ( he's an 18 wheeler truck driver) was getting out of his truck the wind blew the door shut and the door slammed him in the head which knocked him out.. he then fell into the street knocking him into a coma right now he's still in the coma doctors did surgery on him today and it doesn't seem like he's going to make it.. this song really relates to it.. I took him for granted big time I fought with him a lot and the last time I saw him I got mad at him over a little joke i wish i could go back and say " i love you im sorry" The accident was soo unexpected. I wish I could play this song for him but he obviously wouldnt know.. I wish I had told him everything he meant to me.. its soo true tho one second a person can be alive and well and the next something can happen and they can be gone. : ( If you dont make it.. which at this point im really not holding out hope.. RIP PAUL STEVENSON you will forever be loved and remebered as the jokster and the one who could make anyone laugh

my friend | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/16/10

i had a friend pass away out of the blue, he took something that he was allergic too and he chocked on his vomit in his sleep, he was very young only 15 and im only 16 and he was the one who would helped anyone in this world, in school he spoke to people nobody would speak to, he helped a kid he just met not commit suicide because nobody wanted to talk to him, my friend was very special and loved by everyone very much and this song is special to me because at his wake yesterday they played it in a slide show of pictures and the last time i saw him and he hugged me and lifted me off the ground and told me don't take things for granted, well how ironic because i did take things for granted and now that he is gone, im just torn apart he was the reason i smiled sometimes, i dont like to stay home anymore because i cry my eyes out, i just wish i told him how much i loved him before he passed away in his sleep one saturday morning, i dont know how to get over his death, but i can't just hold back my tears when i hear this song and i just wish he was still here to hug and tell him how much i love him, i wish i could kiss him agian but this time i would kiss him like no other time, and i would hug him so tight his eyes would pop out of his head, i hugged his parents i never met but i didnt care because i wanted too, oh i miss him and this song just kills me because his death was accidental and he tried to kill himself before so when we was in the hospital we were all upset, but when he turned his life around and quit all these drugs he was usuing, he passed away by accident, oh how i wish i could tell him <3

analysis of song | Reviewer: Lucas D | 10/25/10

“Things Left Unsaid” by Disciple has a very elegiac tone. It is a tear jerker that really pulls at your heartstrings in an effort to exhort how we should spend more time and tell things to the people that we love before its too late. This alternative rock song has many ties to groups such as Bob Dylan and The Byrds.

The song begins talking about a book that the singer and his friend were discussing called “The Beginning of the End” (6). Which is quite ironic considering that shortly after the friend is laying in a hospital in what is seemed to be a coma. This connection between these two through a book is an example of modernism through logos and how truth is expressed through debate and language. Near the end of this first verse the author wishes that his friend would just open his eyes and speak to him once more (13,14).

The chorus is really where the true meaning and intent of the song starts to come out. The author is really wishing that he would have cultivated a presence (modernism) with this person while they were still alive, saying “If you fly away tonight, I want to tell you that I’m sorry, and that I never told you, when we were face to face” (20-24). The singer is in regret that he had all this time but never said what he really needed to and how it is too late and he will never get the chance until later.

Verse two speaks of another modernistic characteristic in this song. It shows how the singer is interested in depth by saying “Is it really you or just a machine thats giving you life and its making it seem that there could be hope” (28-32). However, the bridge right before the last chorus is really the climax of the song where the meaning shines through. This ending has a tone that seems to be full of hortatory. It tells us this: “And you taught me not to take for granted the time that we have to show that we care, speak into their minds and their hearts while they’re here, and say I love you” (51-58). This really sums up the true meaning of the song stating that we can’t just watch as life passes us by but we have to really make quality relationships with people while we still have time because we never know when your last moment with that person will be.

the saddest song | Reviewer: frase | 6/26/10

This song is very special for me. I had it in my computer for a very long time, and from time to time, i listened to it. And every time, i was thinking how terrible would it be if i loose someone i love. My mother had a cancer and she was fighting 2 years and a half. I was worried of course, i imagined me without her every night, but...for her, i think i didn't do everything i could for her. I mean, i was there with her, but i didn't tell her how much i love her, well, not frequently enough. And one day, she was in a coma. Then i had such a hope that she'll be alright, i sat at her bed all night, i held her hand, i was praying to God... I thought that she couldn't just die, just leave me. She was everything for me. And still is, no matter that she's not here anymore. She passed away after 1 week in coma. At the end she came to herself and we could talk. But now, i don't remember what i said to her, and did i say anything at all. i think i lost my last chance. :( And this song was causing me so much pain that i erased it from my computer. Now, i watch photos of my mother and i think I'm good enough to listen to this song one more time. Because when she's gone, when the thought of her is so painful that i just can't think about it, that means that she's gone from my heart. She doesn't want me to be sad but move on and be strong like her. I don't now why i write this, and i know my English sucks, but i just want to talk about it, make the pain disappear. I didn't talk to anyone about that because i pretend that I'm strong. So...mum, i love you. Even that's not the right way to tell you.

Reminders | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/24/10

This reminds me of all the times I was in the hospital when I was little because it just seemed I had every problem in the world and both of my parents were always there for me. But my brother would never come. Then he would get hospitalized and I wouldn't care. Then finally they thought they would lose me and he finally told me he loved me.
And for some reason,also the time my grandmother was in ICU. She was completely delerious and believed she was going dancing for her friends birthday,then she sang 'happy birthday' to everyone who would walk by. I just cried the whole time,and she always asked me why I was. I'd just tell her I loved her.

tommorrow is not gauranteed | Reviewer: Luke Rios | 5/18/10

This song reminds me of my late grandma Grace. She was the sweetest lady I have ever known. The message in this song is entirely coorect. Most of us don't realize how much we love the different people in our lives until they're gone. That's how it is with me, I got to say goodbye to her but I didn't say it enough when she was alive and now it's too late.

Very Truthful song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/24/10

this song means a lot to me. My mother has been sick all my life,i recently just lost her.She had been fighting for 13 years. She made it this whole time. Unfortunately her fight came to a peaceful end.She was on oxygen and shortly after she died we thought she was still breathing but it was only the oxygen pushing air in her chest.I cry hard every time i hear this song, it reminds me of her so much.

Lori | Reviewer: Michele | 1/29/10

This song has always touched my heart. Even more so after Kevin explained to me who he wrote it for. My best friend/sister just recently passed away unexpectedly. Lori Lynn this song goes out to you cause I will see you again. I love you.
