"The Business of Saving Lives" is a beautifully mesmerizing song that evokes a wide range of emotions from the listeners. It's cute, it's catchy, and it's kinda sad, but it's the perfect combination of each.

Music and lyrics written and performed by Merrill Amos

This is the story of saying goodbye to someone with whom you wish there could have been something more, but circumstances have taken you both elsewhere.
Oh darling, hold that head up high
If you won't miss me, I won't ask why
But please don't kiss me, if it's the last time
Oh, why?

Oh, my heart's seen better days than this, oh
There must be better ways than only this one
But I've never been one for long goodbyes.

I fill my mind with thoughts and reasons
Oh but I try hard not to believe them
They're telling me I'm leaving soon
Yeah they say I'm leaving you behind.
Oh, why?



Oh you and I, We crossed the same lines
And we told the same lies to get by
It's never been this hard to survive here
But we're not in the business of saving lives, dear.

Why oh why, oh why, oh why am I
Why am I surprised?

-Chorus- x
