No vitals

I like the view from your bed
A lopsided shoe peeking out from the wreck
Of your favorite dress left
Crumbled on the floor

I raise my head
To realise
You’re not there
Something’s not right
Burning in water is like drowning in flame

All alone – we die as we sleep
Alone – we die as we sleep

I trace my steps through the house
Towards the light at the end of the hall
There is a restless sound
of falling water

Push open the door to find you gone
An open wrist
Blood on the floor
Your lipstick message cuts like a knife
It hurt too much for too long

All alone – we die as we sleep
Alone – we die as we sleep

Keep breathing … Keep breathing
Keep breathing … Keep breathing

Someone touches me asks for your name
How come you’re here? Did I call for help?
Is that blood on the phone?
This can’t be happening this can’t be happening this can’t be happening

Keep breathing
There’s nothing we can do for
Keep breathing
Let’s give him a little space
Keep breathing
Please follow me, sir, we need to ask you a couple of questions
