13. Dear Death Pt. 2

...In Shallow Seas We Sail
by Emery


Time is running out
As you die die die in this bed not making a sound
It has all come crashing down
To be here and watch you breathe your last
So helpless to stop you from slipping away so fast
Oh God are you listening now
As this cancer dances through her and then takes a bow
It wonít disappoint the crowd
Whose words are a curse as I hear them one by one
Each pull, the string, and I come undone

I know this, I failed to say youíre worth this (Iím sinking by your side)
I wouldnít trade a day to not have gone through this
So many days Iíve been blind, I want to stop and rewind
Kick off our shoes and dance

With the ghost of you
Who could tease me and leave me begging for the abuse
Youíre the only one I knew
That could tame me and make me who I am
But now itís all fading, and thereís nothing left of all my plans

Letís dance again, weíll turn up our sleeves, I know just where to begin
Dance, letís dance again, we could find ourselves before this happened

These words of mine are trite and so clichť
And still they find their place in everything
Itís just to break the silence that has been crushing me
Half of me is dead, already gone
And half is screaming everyone is wrong
Iím finally asking now will you

Just hear me out this was all my fault
Now youíve brought me death and itís everything I wanted
Itís the wrong side of fear that kept me out
