Cancer
My Chemical Romance Lyrics


Turn away
If you could get me a drink
Of water 'cause my lips are chapped and faded
Call my aunt Marie

Help her gather all my things
And bury me
In all my favorite colors
My sisters and my brothers, still

I will not kiss you
'Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you

Now turn away
'Cause I'm awful just to see
'Cause all my hair's abandoned all my body
All my agony
Know that I will never marry
Baby I'm just soggy from the chemo
But counting down the days to go

It just ain't living
And I just hope you know
That if you say (if you say)

Good-bye today (good-bye today)
I'd ask you to be true (I'd ask you to be true)

'Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you

'Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you

Idk i didnt find the other version to be like that. It just felt kinda plain. The repeating the first line over and over throughout didnt really do anything for me.
'Kiss you' over and over throughout is actually a pretty slimy hook to try and grab teen girl's attention, it doesnt actually fit with the feel or meaning of the song.
While the twenty on pilots version was certainly not a bad song, i cant say it is a good cover.

Especially the lines
If you say
Goodbye today

Mcr sing it with such a powerful lilt in the note that is lost completely in the cover and honestly makes it sound like the whole thing is done by a kid who cant really sing.

I hate how this beautiful song is the reason T∅P and MCR fans fight.

Edit:
Bruh, three years and this comment still gets replies.
For the record, I GREATLY prefer the original, and my comment was about my distaste in rabid fan warfare.
But now, I’ve come to realize that this is an inherent part of fan culture.
I now look upon such bickering with complete apathy.

TL;DR fandoms suck, they can burn for all I care.

Me: shows my mom this song.
Mom: "so this song is about someone dying, right?
Me: "yeah, the album it's from is about this guy who's dying in the hospital."
Mom: "the whole album? So you just cry the whole time?"
Me: "exactly."
Mom: "was their next album happier at least?"
Me: "their next album was about the apocalypse."
Mom: "oh..."
Me: "but it was a fun apocalypse."
Mom: "oh... okay..."
Literally a conversation I just had with my mom... I think she's worried about me.

My son used to be a huge fan of this band. A few months ago he died of cancer and now I think I'm a little bit closer to him while listening to these songs but I just can't finish this one, it hurts too much.
