Suicide Romance

An Original Song for Dylan

Suicide Romance

Cling to the rope, fall to the floorNothing matters anymoreForce the pills down your throatPray the pain will let you goI see you pull the trigger in my headI feel you take your one last breath

Oh, God, is there a wayFor me to take his place?Oh, God, can you hear me?Can’t I take his place?Oh, God, take me insteadGive him another chancePut the barrel to my headEnd his suicide romance

Do I have to wear my scarsLike a badge on my arms?Am I just a tragic storyIn it for the glory

Your mirror holds an ugly faceTaking up wasted spaceBut you are not a tragic storyYou’re every beautiful thing to me

Oh, God, is there a way

For me to take her place?Oh, God, can you hear me?Can’t I take her place?Oh, God, take me insteadGive her another chancePut the barrel to my headEnd her suicide romance

We would never meet againThe second that you took your aimCould you be his saving graceIf I called out your holy name?

Oh, God, is there a wayFor me to take his place?Oh, God, can you hear me?

Oh, God, is this the wayFor me to take their place?Oh, God, can you hear me?Did I take their place?Oh, God, save me againGive me another chanceTake the barrel from my headEnd this suicide romance
