Five Minutes

If I only had five minutes, the day you passed away..
I would’ve had time to tell you, all the things I needed to say.
I never got to tell you, how much you mean to me..
Or that you were the best, than anyone could be.

The last time that I talked to you, I wish I would have known..
I would have said I love you, and kept you on the phone.

If I only had five minutes, the day you passed away..
I’d hold on to you with real tight hugs, I wouldn’t want you to go..
I would tell you that I’ll miss you, more than you’ll ever know.

But you were gone so quickly, one last car ride you’d take..
Before you even knew it, you were standing at heaven’s gate.

Now God has called upon you, It’s time to get your wings..
To leave this life behind you and enjoy all of heavens beautiful things.

So wait for me in heaven, don’t let me come alone..
The day the angels come for me, please be there to bring me home.
