We should have finished what we started
Or have had a conversation
Of all the ways I feel cheated
Oh, the complications

But I'm not your terminal patient

You should have seen me at the sunrise
Grinning from the inside
You'd still tell me that I'm crazy

But I'm not your terminal patient

Same scars, same broken heart
A work of Nicholas Sparks

And when we get a little older
And move a little slower
If you'd greet by my bedside
You've lived an incomplete life

But I'm not your terminal patient
I'm not your terminal patient
I'm not your terminal patient
