Ambulance

By @rue_lourd

No, no

what’s going on?

My stomach’s in my throat

This has to be wrong.

Tell me it’s not true

Tell me it’s not true

tell me, tell me, tell me

Oh, please tell me it’s not true.

I can see it in my mind

Those lights are flashing fast

Why were people so unkind?

Now you’re drowning in your past.

Who did this to you?

Who did this to you?

Tell me, tell me, tell me

Tell me, who did this to you?

I keep checking my phone

No messages appear

I think of you, all alone

The pain that no one could hear

Tell me you’re alive

Tell me you’re alive

Tell me, tell me, tell me

Please, just tell me you’re alive.

I want to hear you gush about space again

I want to see the excitement on your face when you talk about something you love

I want to see that icon flash up on my phone and read your messages

I want to understand

I want you to trust me

I want you to live

I want you to want to live

I want you

to want to live

I want for you to be happy

My friend,

Please don’t leave me in an ambulance.
