Take a breath,
Take it deep.
‘Calm yourself’, He says to me
If you play, you play for keeps.
Take the gun and count to three.
Im sweating now,
No time to think. My turn to go
And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest.
Said I’m terrified but I’m not leaving
I know that I must pass this test
So, just pull the trigger
Say a prayer to yourself
He says ‘close your eyes, sometimes it helps’
And then I get a scary thought
That he’s here – means he’s never lost
As my life flashes before my eyes
I’m wondering will I ever see another sunrise?
So many won’t get the chance to say good-bye
But its too late to think of the value of my life
~as not all love stories end happily~
