Chester See - What Sarah Said Lyrics

And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to father time
As I stared at my shoes in the ICU that reeked of piss and 409
And I rationed my breaths as I said to myself that I'd already taken too much today
As each descending peak on the LCD took you a little farther away from me
Away from me

Amongst the vending machines and year-old magazines in a place where we only say goodbye
Stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds
And I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never lain beside at all
And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground as the TV entertained itself

'Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room
Just nervous pacers bracing for bad news
And then the nurse comes round and everyone will lift their heads
But I'm thinking of what Sarah said that "Love is watching someone die"

Chester See What Sarah Said Comments
  1. Terry Pearo

    Chester congratulations on winning the Hearts, minds, and souls of so many people with your singing and your dedication to good music and consistancy. I only just discovered you about 3 weeks ago when I had my computer on in the room I was sleeping in and for some reason I heard you singing that song Your Not the One . I lay there listerning to the lyrics as you were singing them and it was so much to the point & just coincidently mirrored the exact same thing i was going through with a girlfriend of mine. Well in my mind she was but in her mind she was already attached to this other guy... enough .. it was so cool because just a few hours after hearing it for the first timei got to play it for her and I was able to add just a little sarcasm and said to her"Gee doesn't this song sound like someone we know." it took her a second but then she got it and I could almost feel her embarassment and pai. I didn't want it to be that way but it happened and I'm the kind of person that believes that if something like that happens it isn't a coincident ~ someone somewhere had control over it happenig and happening at a time that will make the greatest impact opn the persons experienceing it. Was perfect timing. and it did help her see what she was giving up. Anyway thanks Chester for writing so many great songs.

    Old singer man singing songs

  53. Destiny Riddle

    Most people have forgotten the meaning behind music, or lost sight of it. You, my friend, know exactly what it is. Your songs, even covers, hold so much more emotion in them than most music out there. I'm so glad you do what you do. I prefer your covers over the originals.

  54. Nicholas Ledger

    I really like this cover.

  55. Arasyi Maharani Arasyi

    Amazing voice(:

  56. Queen Feranmi

    And it came to me then
    That every plan
    Is a tiny prayer to father time

    As I stared at my shoes
    In the ICU
    That reeked of piss and 409

    And I rationed my breaths
    As I said to myself
    That I'd already taken too much today

    As each descending peak
    On the LCD
    Took you a little farther away from me
    Away from me

    Amongst the vending machines
    And year old magazines
    In a place where we only say goodbye

    It sung like a violent wind
    That our memories depend
    On a faulty camera in our minds

    And I knew that you were truth
    I would rather loose
    Than to have never lain beside at all

    And I looked around
    At all the eyes on the ground
    As the TV entertained itself

    Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room
    Just nervous paces bracing for bad news
    And then the nurse comes round
    And everyone lifts their head
    But I'm thinking of what Sarah said

    That love is watching someone die

    So who's gonna watch you die

    Sameer D'Souza

  87. Jackie Vee

    God dammit, Chester + Death Cab = perfection 👌🏻

  88. Brianbui23

    Wow, just wow

  89. Allie Marshall

    I'd truly love to hear you sing a piece with totally stripped down vox! A cover/an original, whatever ya want. But it's so much more powerful to hear a raw, human voice- and the natural inflections and emotion- rather than the over-processed "perfect" sound that's become so popular. PS fantastic song choice!

    Daniel Buckner

    Allison Marshall just listen to him in the video for the greatest showman is heavenly


    @Allie - If you've known him long enough, he's done countless songs live over the years on his channel. Go to his channel and just keep scrolling through all his videos and you'll find them! ;)


    @Allie - And I think you got the wrong idea. Again, if you've watched Chester's vids long enough, you'd know that he doesn't "over-process" his voice whatsoever. Rather he complements his voice with some minor "roughing out" of the edges (slight imperfections/mis-notes) and that's all. He sounds pretty much the same as he does in these studio versions. He's a tremendously talented singer & songwriter. Please look up more of his previous videos to get a better idea, especially his live performances. There's countless to watch!

  90. Shannon Curley

    Wow ❤️
