Possibly the geekiest song in the world: written about Torchwood having just been listening to Chameleon Circuit...
I don't even know any more.

If I'd known you wouldn't run,
That you would still stand there,
If I'd known you hadn't left me,
But he's dying and I'm scared.

I would have stayed, would have watched
The way you cared for her.
Instead I ran, gun in my hand,
Back towards what we were.

Now still I wait, my hands so cold,
The metal's shining bright.
If they come I'm thinking of you,
I'll die facing the light. 

I would have stayed, would have watched
The way you cared for her.
Instead I ran, gun in my hand,
Back towards what we were. 

They know my name, know where I am,
I've got to leave you now.
But take my child and hold her close:
I wish I'd shown you how.

I would have stayed, would have watched
The way you cared for her.
Instead I ran, gun in my hand,
Back towards what we were. 

I thought they'd leave you, let you go,
Since we're the ones they need.
Hush, little one - don't let her cry,
Or else they'll make her bleed.

I would have stayed, would have watched
The way you cared for her.
Instead I ran, gun in my hand,
Back towards what we were.  

Now the man we thought was safe,
The one who couldn't die.
Seems he's the one who has to fear,
Falling from the sky.

I would have stayed, would have watched
The way you cared for her.
Instead I ran, gun in my hand,
Back towards what we were. 

I'm so sorry that I had to go,
I'm sure you understand.
The child's my life, just hold her close,
We'll try to make a stand!

I would have stayed, would have watched
The way you cared for her.
Instead I ran, gun in my hand,
Back towards what we were.  

I should have stayed, should have watched
The way you cared for her.
Instead I ran, gun in my hand,
Back towards what we were. 

The End
