I could've died that night, way back in June
Saw my soul hang heavy above the room

Slack-jawed, I confessed, bit by my hubris
I was spooked out, obsessed by the moon

I was completely not me
But baby, I’m coming clean

The doctors said to you
“Son, there’s nothing you can do
Just leave her here and wait until the day”

I was shivering in bed, eyes rolled back in my head
I was begging for you to go away

I was completely not me
But baby, I’m coming clean
Completely not me
But baby, I’m coming clean

I was completely not me
But baby, I’m coming clean
Completely not me
But baby, I’m coming clean

I died that night, way back in June
While my spirit hung heavy above the room

I was completely not me

    General CommentThis song is about the moments before his/her possible death related to addiction. In the first verse, she could've died but overcame her addiction and recovered. In the last verse, she doesn't and dies. I think the chorus that she repeats is like what addicts say: that they are done. But they fall back into old habits, so you keep hearing the same old story; still they haven't changed.
