That's all we do nowadays
We scroll past our fears and we swipe for a yes or a no
We no longer feel like we need to be more
We no longer feel like we're stupid
Google is such an awesome platform
You've never felt such speed
And such connections to the world
You shall ask and receive
But what happens when Google can't answer?
What happens when your screen powers off
You charge it and you start again.
Would it be so hard for you to drop your phone?
Would it be so hard for you to listen to me?
Would it be so hard if life could be for just one hour?
If we could spend minutes together and actually look in each other's eyes.
Would it be too much to ask?
Would I be a brat for wanting you to myself for 24 hours?
I'm not asking you to shut down your life.
I'm just asking you to be here with me for just a minute.
Actually, I was asking a month ago.
Now I'm gone and I'm just a ghost.
So my memories will live on in your phone.
The only important question is:
Would it have been so hard if you knew I had one day left on Earth...
