COLLAPSE AND DISSOLVE

I asked if you’re ok
What did they tell you?
What did they say?
Weak knees on shaking ground
Trade places with me
I’ll drive you home

Don’t think, don’t breathe, don’t let it in
There’s plenty of time once you get home
Don’t speak, just speed, you gotta floor it now
Five more minutes to race the tears home

then…
Collapse and dissolve

Frozen at the shoulder
Cars rush by and
Headlights blind.
It can’t be, it can’t be
It can’t be happening
I’ve got to put my blinker on
Gotta get us home.

Through sharp pain and
Blurry eyes.
I focus on the road.
Turn left, we’re almost home
And then we step out into a
Brave, new world.
A world he’ll never know.

Don’t think, don’t breathe, don’t let it in
There’s plenty of time once you get home
Don’t speak, just speed, you gotta floor it now
Five more minutes to race the tears home then…
Collapse and dissolve
