Hymns

from by Flip Grater

lyrics

Don’t sing me your hymns
Or watch me sleep
I’ve always been alone
Between the sheets
I would say goodbye but I just don’t want to leave

Don’t call me names
Or believe I want fame
I’ve always wanted love
And I know it’s not the same
I would hope to die but I just don’t want to leave

Don’t show me your face
All covered in tears
I’m busy with my own mind
I’ve been stuck here for years
I would like to sing but it’s hard enough to breathe

Don’t sing me your hymns
At the end of the day
I’ve always been alone
And that’s how it should stay
And I would say goodbye but just can’t seem to leave
