Suicide Romance

An Original Song for Dylan

Cling to the rope, fall to the floor
Nothing matters anymore
Force the pills down your throat
Pray the pain will let you go
I see you pull the trigger in my head
I feel you take your one last breath

Oh, God, is there a way
For me to take his place?
Oh, God, can you hear me?
Can’t I take his place?
Oh, God, take me instead
Give him another chance
Put the barrel to my head
End his suicide romance

Do I have to wear my scars
Like a badge on my arms?
Am I just a tragic story
In it for the glory

Your mirror holds an ugly face
Taking up wasted space
But you are not a tragic story
You’re every beautiful thing to me

Oh, God, is there a way

For me to take her place?
Oh, God, can you hear me?
Can’t I take her place?
Oh, God, take me instead
Give her another chance
Put the barrel to my head
End her suicide romance

We would never meet again
The second that you took your aim
Could you be his saving grace
If I called out your holy name?

Oh, God, is there a way
For me to take his place?
Oh, God, can you hear me?

Oh, God, is this the way
For me to take their place?
Oh, God, can you hear me?
Did I take their place?
Oh, God, save me again
Give me another chance
Take the barrel from my head
End this suicide romance
