Foreman, Jon - Terminal Lyrics




The doctor says I'm dying
I die a little every day
But he's got no prescription that could
Take my death away
The doctor says it don't look so good
It's terminal
Some folks die in offices one day at a time
They could live a hundred years
But their soul's already dead
Don't let your spirit die before your body does
We're terminal, we're terminal
We're terminal

We are, we are the living souls
With terminal hearts, terminal parts
Flickering like candles, shimmering like candles
We're fatally flawed, we're fatally flawed

Whenever I start cursing at the traffic or the phone
I remind myself that we have all got cancer in our bones
Don’t yell at the dead, show a little respect
It’s terminal, it's terminal

We are, we are the living souls
With terminal hearts, terminal parts
Flickering like candles, shimmering like candles
We're fatally flawed, we're fatally flawed
[x2]

[Spoken:]
Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust
For our days here are like grass
We flourish like a flower of the field
The wind blows and it is gone
And its place remembers it no more
Naked we came from our mother’s womb
And naked we will depart
For we bring nothing into the world
And we take nothing away
For we bring nothing into the world
And we take nothing away

We are, we are the living souls
With terminal hearts, terminal parts
Flickering like candles, shimmering like candles
We're fatally flawed in the image of God

    The doctor says I'm dying
    I die a little every day
    But he's got no prescription that could
    Take my death away
    The doctor says it don't look so good
    It's terminal
    Some folks die in offices one day at a time
    They could live a hundred years
    But their soul's already dead
    Don't let your spirit die before your body does
    We're terminal, we're terminal
    We're terminal

    We are, we are living souls
    With terminal hearts, terminal parts
    Flickering like candles, shimmering like candles
    We're fatally flawed, we're fatally flawed

    Whenever I start cursing at the traffic or the phone
    I remind myself that we have all got cancer in our bones
    Don’t yell at the dead, show a little respect
    It’s terminal, it's terminal

    We are, we are living souls
    With terminal hearts, terminal parts
    Flickering like candles, flickering like candles
    We're fatally flawed, we're fatally flawed

    Naked we came from our mother’s womb
    And naked we will depart
    For we bring nothing into the world
    And we can take nothing away
    For we bring nothing into the world
    And we take nothing away...

    We are, we are living souls
    With terminal hearts, terminal parts
    Flickering like candles, flickering like candles
    We're fatally flawed in the image of God

  6. Jules Loves

    Excellent song, lyrical genius ❤️

  7. Sarah Valeska_

    Amo demasiado esta canción!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Tony Lagano

    Is it just me or does Jon's music seem like it's inspired by Coldplay?

    KuriousG

    perhaps instrumentally but if you compare lyrics, there is no similarity... jon lyrics: deep, moving & brilliant... coldplay lyrics: "I'd rather be a comma than a full stop"... no competition whatsoever...in my opinion anyways =)

  9. s f

    The instrumental on this song is soooo beautiful, makes me think of snow coming down in an open Glen surrounded by trees which is a complete contrast to the lyrics but maybe not so much of a contrast 🤔

  10. Linda Gabriel

    Love this song, such a haunting tune and meaningful lyrics!

  11. João Folha

    COLDPLAY

  12. mohit kedia

    Your music is so meaningful. :-)

  13. Missionaria Neide Carneiro

    linda canção, obrigado jon!

  14. Cole Blankers

    +shohna amen

  15. eukaryote90

    A lot of times, I wish I had chosen an easier career. Then I remember this... "Some folks die in offices one day at a time. They could live a hundred years, but the soul's already died. Don't let your spirit die before your body does." And then it's all worth it. All the sweat and tears. Thank you, sir.

  16. Dzintra Štokmane

    Thank,s for good music.

  17. Matthew D

    Love this

  18. Jeannie Aromea

    My fave part is the choir part near the end, its a beautiful bridge leading to the image of God part.

  19. shohna

    Jon, nobody writes like you do. You help keep me on track to remember that we're headed Home. Like in "4:12", sometimes I start thinking that "all we are is material." But then I listen to your stuff and it makes me realize: that kind of thinking is "nonsensical" - because "we are the lost souls with a second start following the Builder home!" Thank you.

    Jeannie Aromea

    +shohna I write like him. I'm the female version of him.

    Randell Moesnadi

    +Jeannie Aromea for real? haha :D

    Jeannie Aromea

    +Randell Moesnadi does that excite you? subscribe to my YouTube page and my facebook. cheers...

    CitrusPoisoning

    +Jeannie Aromea youre obviously not, cos Jon would never say shit like what you just did

    Silvius

    +Jeannie Aromea Hate to rain on your parade, but it smells like trash advertising in here. Nobody writes-- or performs-- like this dude.

  20. Mr.Afterlife

    We are the living souls! ;)

  21. Paulo Júnior

    This Song Is Awesome!

  22. Glenn Guillory

    Yep! It's important to stay active and not to be sitting around all the time. I have 70 years coming up in November and I'm always busy with something. Mostly I like helping others.

  23. Lyndsay R

    Thank you :')

  24. csds1987
