sure as a surgeon
you slipped your hand into the door jam
blood coursing through the air tonight
i know who i am
and i know who you are
or who you were just an hour ago
static interference on the radio tonight
i know what i know

quick as lightning
you brought your hand back inside
and you shut the door behind you
it's too hot out there tonight
breath rising and falling
expansion contraction
why'd you tell me this?
were you looking for my reaction?

    General CommentI get the impression that it's about the aftermath of a fight.

    General Comment"This is a about the point where, um, you love someone a lot and it's not dead yet - you know it's not dead yet - because sometimes you fall asleep about an hour later than you want to because it racks the interior of your, your...sternum, as we call it in the medical business. And, uh. But every time you're together somebody's gotta die... And y'all think I'm crazy, but in the backs of your minds you know what I;m talking about."
