the death i deserve

© 2016 harper blue music

no
baby don’t do this
you know we’ve been through this
ten times before
i know
like i always knew this
but could never prove it
my live for you
like planes into buildings
or drones overhead
all these armed misunderstandings
collecting their dead
i’ve been dying
for years now
but you slowed me down
and i wish that you’d never
i wish that i’d drowned
that’s the death i deserve
anonymous and sure
take me down
take me down
where no-
body eats nothing
where nobody feels
nobody feels
where i can die slowly
like i did before
without ever living
without being more
where lions and tigers
and bears pass me by
saying
this one is poisoned
we’d best let her lie
that’s the death i deserve
anonymous and sure
take me down
take me down
no
baby don’t do this
i know you’re in pain
i know it’s my fault
i know
why nobody knew this
masks never do it
and that’s all i am


You can read the story of the second song of 2016 here. Watch me cry and falsetto my way through it right after I wrote it. Looking back now at these dates, I suppose I should have known we were doomed.
