My shadow pulled me up the stairs
To a room that’s filled with tired air
And I watched you sleep ‘cause no one else cared
All alone I sit and wait
For the anesthetic in my veins
To take me up and take me out
Loud
To that Ivory coast
Let it go
On that Ivory coast
Let me go
Nurses dressed you up in white
They gave you paler skin and blood shot eyes
And I’ve forgotten that we never last long
Remember when you held my hand
Over banisters we couldn’t mend
The screen goes black for me
They caught us jumping out the window
