Spending my days with hospital girls
That look in their eyes as desperate pleas unfurl
The IV drips on a constant feed
The machines by their side keep a persistent beat
The sick lights shine on cold marble skin
A sanitary mess and a morphine drip.
Though sick in your veins and you can hardly breathe,
Will your fake plastic heart ever learn to love me?
It’s ordinary, quite ordinary, my love
To each his own, and you are my own, my lovely dying girl
It won’t be long to be on my own again
It’s not extraordinary to move on again, my love
Please forgive me
I can’t wait for you to live
