I'll tell a joke and she'll try not to laugh,
As the men made of stone find their surgery masks.
I head down the road or the linoleum floor.
I really can't tell anymore.
I see flourescent clouds in a white tile sky.
I see trees all around with name tags on their ties.
She takes my hand and the trees turn around.
She says, "Promise you're coming back out"

'Cause I always believed you.
When you swore to me you'd pull through.
So I plugged my heart into yours,
A life support.
So see, you can't leave.
'Cause I always believed

I'll fall asleep but she'll still be close by.
In perscription dreams everything seems alright.
I head down the street or the linoleum floor.
I really can't tell anymore.
I feel a clean plastic breeze moving left of my ship,
And the wind blows much harder when a man flips a switch.
She takes my hand, and the wind comes to a stop
She says "Promise you're not giving up."

'Cause I always believed you,
When you swore to me, you'd pull through.
So I plugged my heart into yours,
A life support.
So see, you can't leave cause I always believed.
I always believed.

I'll make a joke and she'll try not to laugh,
As the men made of stone find their surgery masks.
I head down the road or the linoleum floor,
I really can't tell anymore.

    Surgery- A few months back my dad sat me down to talk to me and actually kind of blindsided me with the fact that he was diagnosed with cancer. He was diagnosed 6 months before he told me, but he wanted to wait until he knew he was going to have to have surgery to tell me because he didn't want me to have to be scared if he could avoid it. And I'm not the best at talking about how I feel so I locked myself in my room for a while and ended up writing surgery about this. It's sort written as my mom, who passed away two years ago, and dad talking to eachother. It's about how he was promising her he'd be okay, the way he promised me.

    I love this song. It's amazing.
