I sit in the corner
eyes turned down to the
blank White paper that
stares right back
sleep evaded me last night but
I've got to keep my eyes wide
got to seem alright
because I see you move your chair
from that table over there

and I know what you're going to say
Darling are you ok?

You don't seem yourself today
baby did you not sleep last night
was the pillow not your friend
or was it nightmares again
do you want to talk to me
about it
as I look into your eyes
and I reply

You don't want to know
how many times I saw you
die

Your eyes well up and you
take me in your arms
but they don't seem to
comfort me
like before because I'm waiting
for the bullet in your head
and I know this time
you're really getting scared cause your
words stumble out like before

and I know what you're going to say
Darling are you ok?

You don't seem yourself today
baby did you not sleep last night
was the pillow not your friend
or was it nightmares again
do you want to talk to me
about it
as I look into your eyes
and I reply

You don't want to know
how many times I saw you
die

So hold me in your strong
arms like a strait jacket would
and look me in the soul with
cornflower eyes
because I can't face the world
without your smile

And just tell me what I want hear you say
darling it's going to be ok

Ok, oh oh kaaayy, ok

Oh Darling we're going to be ok
