The Antlers - Kettering

I wish that I had known in

that first minute we met,

the unpayable debt

that I owed you.

'Cause you'd been abused 

by the bone that refused

you and you hired me

to make up for that.

And walking in that room

when you had tubes in your arms,

those singing morphine alarms

out of tune.

They had you sleeping and eating and

and I didn’t believe them

when they called you a hurricane thunderclap.

When I was checking vitals

I suggested a smile.

You didn’t talk for a while.

You were freezing.

You said you hated my tone.

It made you feel so alone

so you told me I had to be leaving

But something kept me standing

by that hospital bed.

I should have quit but instead

I took care of you.

You made me sleep and uneven

and I didn’t believe that

when they told me that there

was no saving you.
