they'd hooked you up to a fentanyl drip
to mitigate the pain a little bit
i flew in from pennsylvania
when i heard the hour was coming fast
 

Bm  G                      D5
      And i docked in santa barbara
Bm  G                    D5
      tried to brace myself
Bm  G                         D5
      but you can't brace yourself
         Bm         G                                   Asus4
when the time comes      you just have to roll with the blast

           Em                 G
and i'm an 18-wheeler headed down the interstate
       D5                                 A                G
and my brakes are gonna give and i won't know til it's too late
      C                         D
tires screaming when i lose control
           Asus4                        G
try not to hurt too many people when i roll

find the harbor freeway and head south
real tired, head kind of light
i found telegraph road, i'd only seen the name on envelopes
found the parking lot and turned right

i felt all the details carving out space in my head
tropicanas on the walkway neon red
between the pain and the pills trying to hold it at bay
stands a traveler going somewhere far away

and i am an airplane tumbling wing over wing
try to listen to my instruments they don't say anything
people screaming when the engines quit
i hope we're all in crash position when we hit

instrumental break

and then came to your bedside
and as it turns out
i'm not ready
and as though
you were speaking through a thick haze
you said hello to me

we all stood there around you
happy to hear you speak
the last of something bright burning
still burning
beyond the cancer and the chemotherapy

and you were a presence full of light upon this earth
and i am a witness to your life and to its worth
it's three days later when i get the call
and there's nobody around to break my fall
