we were talking bout the end of days we laughed and we cried and we went our way it don't mean nothing when we say goodbye but you never know it could be the last time please don't die, please don't die, please don't die, please don't die i looked you in the eye and i said "i don't want you to die" you looked me in the eye and said "neither do i" early in the morning the dogs were barking loud i went to go see what the fuss was all about a little black bird was flying through the room i grabbed a broom and shooed it out the door the doors were all closed, the windows were all closed how that bird got in here, nobody knows please don't die, please don't die, please don't die, please don't die i dreamed that we were driving on a bridge last night the water was so high it was all over the road the windshield wipers on, the waves were splashing we kept on driving, that's when i woke up it was late at night, three knocks on the door there's blood on my doorway again i reach for my phone, the battery is low gotta keep my phone alive, gotta my self alive please don't die, please don't die, please don't die, please don't die i looked you in the eye and i said "i don't want you to die" you looked me in the eye and said "neither do i" please don't die, please don't die, please don't die, please don't die

chocolate 03:07
i received your letter days after you died it said: return to sender it had the wrong address inside were chocolate coins and crooked letters few words falling down the page it was the shortest letter it made it just in time i sat in my old room down the hall from your room i folded the paper and i ate a chocolate coin i took the rest home now they sit in a drawer safe in my room where i sleep every night i think i'll have another someday or maybe they've spoiled and then i'll have to throw them out

i went to an antique mall to see what i could find something might catch my eye something that you might like i wanna buy things for you when i'm gone looking through the pretty things pretty little things for you looking at the magazines found a dirty magazine i wanna do things for you when i'm home i wanna buy things for you when i'm gone there's something you need something i need something you need something i need i wanna buy things for you when i'm gone looking through all the records whipped cream and other delights i'm gonna get you when i'm home thinking about the picture you sent last night i wanna buy things for you when i'm gone looking at the magazines waiting for this trip to end standing here reading alone thinking of you at the antique mall i wanna buy things for you when i'm gone i wanna do things for you when i'm home there's something you need something i need something you need something i need i wanna buy things for you when i'm gone

bottom 02:34
down at the bottom all the way down here i can feel you close to me it's good to feel you i can look up and see the sun coming through the cracks i can see your green eyes glowing in the dark how'd i get down here maybe i tripped and fell did you come in after me or was that me following you down? i can see your green eyes glowing in the dark holding you so close down here in the dark when i stare at the sun i can't see a thing until my eyes adjust again i'll just listen for your breath holding you so close down here in the dark i can see your green eyes glowing in the dark i can look up and see the sun coming through the cracks we'll get back up there baby soon enough

cruise ships 02:50
empty cruise ships sailing in down the river here they come like a ghost town on the sea watch as they float past me where are all the people what does all this mean do you think they'll still open that cruise port by the end of the world? walking on the levee what's that i see? holy shit it's an empty cruise ship slowly following me where are all the people what does all this mean do you think they'll still open that cruise port by the end of the world? i have so many questions the future is unclear

love poem 03:40
somewhere in america the longest line is happening  today  right now maybe it’s  happening at the post office or maybe the  grocery store check out it could be at the bank or the  customer service counter  at some place  like a target or a walmart  the people are returning things the people are complaining today right now at the pharmacy  the people need  their pills there is a pill  for everything i read a story  about two lovers magic pills and staying in love  forever the longest line in america  is happening  in our neighborhood coffee shop right now which reminds me i should start the coffee soon  put the water on but it doesn’t matter it doesn’t matter it doesn’t matter we are not waiting for any lines  under the covers  we are the only ones making lines here
