Swallow the Pill

from by Erin Tobey




Would you swallow that pill?
Because I will, I will
Could you hang on to that hand?
Because I can, I can
And could you stay here
with me for a while,
always knowing that it’s
not our bodies’ style
to live forever?

Death to death and death to life,
I’m here with you tonight
Death to death and death to life
With lightning in the sky
Death to death and death to life
I’m here with you tomorrow night

To those who mock and scorn us,
I’ll tell them what I know,
and this is what I know:
that someday our love will die
just like everything dies
Everything dies

But it’s not just you and me,
I’m married to the mystery
and I love it, too
just like I love you
