Original video
I had not planned on seeing you
I was afraid of what I'd do
But pride is strong and here am I
And I just can't let you say goodbye

Please, have no fear you're in no harm
As long as you're here in my arms
But you can't leave, so please don't try
But I just can't let you say goodbye

What force behind your evil mind
Can make your lips speak so unkind
To one who loves as much as I
But I just can't let you say goodbye

The flesh around your throat is pale
Indented by my fingernails
Please don't scream and please don't cry
'Cause I just can't let you say goodbye

Your voice is still it speaks no more
You'll never hurt me anymore
Death is a friend to love and I
'Cause now you'll never say goodbye
