I'm Worried About Jill
"I'm worried about Jill" I said to my wife"
She's a grown woman, I'm sure she's alright"
"It's only 4 days, she might be away"
"You're right, I'm sure I'll see her today"
Took the dog for a walk and there was still no sign
But the wife was right, she was probably fine.
4 days turned to 6 and still she's a no-show
I'm worried about this woman I hardly know
Don't know her last name, she's only a neighbour
But this isn't like her usual behaviour
I saw her everyday sometimes it was twice
She was kind of a drunk, but she was really quite nice
6 days are now 8 I'm really concerned
If she has gone away, I wish she'd return
I bought presents for her and some for her pets
Because she always brought my bin in whenever I'd forget
I'm starting to think that she isn't away
I'll speak to her brother, see what he's got to say
I went over to see what I could ascertain
When he told me that Jill had opened her veins
"There was blood everywhere" he told me in tears
I broke down right there, it was just what I'd feared
We weren't best of friends, but we spoke every day
But I'll never again hear what she has to say
I'm so sorry Jill, I knew something was wrong
Now you're not coming back, you're forever gone
If you're worried for someone, ask if they're okay
That might be the thing that makes them decide to stay
