Breathe now, while you have a choice
I watched your color fade
You're a siren without a voice

Don't leave me here
To carry the banner
Like the string to the hammer
You were the key pressed too many times
Now my hand's on a still chest
Praying for short breaths
Awaiting a miracle

Leave now, all that you're buried in
Shed your leaves, catch the crow
A soft swallow to sing again
You raise the colors of the king to slay the ghost
But it's the romance of holding your breath til you get what you want
That keeps you home

Don't leave me here
To find juniper casings
At your feet while your tasting
The sour of sweet from the life you took
You were the still before morning
A storm without warning
A page from a better book
What are you waiting for

Leave now, live out your safer bet
And tell me that you don't have regret
What are you waiting for

You were a song sung in passing
A shadow left casting
Now your pages are burning
From your diagram lasting
I drew the sick from your shoulder
To watch you recover
Start living for something
Or you'll die here for nothing
What are you waiting for
