one for me

Am I going insane?

My blood is boiling inside my veins.

My body’s aching, my hands are shaking.

I’m afraid that there’s no turning back.

So take your eyes off that trigger,

You cannot die while you’re here in my arms.

I’m not to blame if the world turns to black.

There may be hope for a final embrace.

 

I was told to run away,

And I disobeyed.
Am I going insane?

My blood is boiling inside my veins.

My body’s aching, my hands are shaking.

I’m afraid that there’s no turning back.

So take your eyes off that trigger,

You cannot die while you’re here in my arms.

I’m not to blame if the world turns to black.

There may be hope for a final embrace.

 

I was told to run away,

And I disobeyed.

You were told to stay away,

And you just could not obey.

You are the one for me,

One for me.

 

You ask if it’s your turn to die,

My heart is pounding as you say goodbye.

You finger that trigger like you did my face,

Will you just leave me crying and screaming your name?

You said that we’d be forever,

How can you lie then die to my face?

Now we can’t be together.

You’ve just given your final embrace.

 

You didn’t take your eyes off that trigger,

You died while you were here in my arms.

I’m not to blame if the world turns to black.

There is no hope for a final embrace.

I was told to run away,

And I disobeyed.

You were told to stay away,

And you just could not obey.

You were the one for me,

One for me.

 

Now I lie alone,

Your cold body holding me down.

I gave you my heart,

Was that not enough?
You were told to stay away,

And you just could not obey.

You are the one for me,

One for me.

 

You ask if it’s your turn to die,

My heart is pounding as you say goodbye.

You finger that trigger like you did my face,

Will you just leave me crying and screaming your name?

You said that we’d be forever,

How can you lie then die to my face?

Now we can’t be together.

You’ve just given your final embrace.

 

You didn’t take your eyes off that trigger,

You died while you were here in my arms.

I’m not to blame if the world turns to black.

There is no hope for a final embrace.

I was told to run away,

And I disobeyed.

You were told to stay away,

And you just could not obey.

You were the one for me,

One for me.

 

Now I lie alone,

Your cold body holding me down.

I gave you my heart,

Was that not enough?

    Yes, you are no fly by night poet, sir. You have consistency and immediacy ... love and war alike is not metaphor to you, not a trope, it is an emergency. Well done again.
