about

she's getting a headache
no she can't breathe
she's trying to say things
even though she can't speak
and your words will fall so violently
that we'll tape them back together.
and the family will fall apart
because we know you won't get better.

just hold on and pretend she's okay this time.
just relax, please sit down, I know how you feel, we're all terrified.
just go home, there's nothing anyone here can do anymore.
just shut up and go to bed.
there will be lots of planning tomorrow morning.

we should be used to this
but we're learning more, it's fine.
I should be better at expressing things
I know we're running out of time.
and your body fell so violently
they couldn't tape you back together
and I wonder if my mom knows
because she swore that you'd get better.

just hold on and pretend she's okay this time.
just relax, please sit down, I know how you feel, we're all terrified.
just go home, there's nothing anyone here can do anymore.
just shut up and go to bed.
there will be lots of planning tomorrow morning.

she said it's just a headache
she said it's nothing more
we all know she's lying
she's lying on the floor

she said it's just a headache
she said it's nothing more
we all know she's lying
she won't get off the floor

she said it's just a headache
she said it's nothing more
we all know she's lying
she's won't get off the floor

she said it's just a headache
she said it's nothing more
we all know she's lying
she won't get off the floor
