smile

my eyes glaze over
things seem so far away
but i didn’t think that i’d go this way
i thought i’d go quick and to the point
but now it’s fading and everything’s disjoint
here i am i’m on a hospital bed lying
and it feels like it’s barely worth trying
to breathe

even though i’m dying
i feel so still
now i’ve stopped crying
i can feel death’s chill
everything starts to fade away
and i’m left smiling
at the end of my days

the faces blur
i don’t know who they are
they don’t seem human close to me but still so far
i always thought i had so much to say
the words run out and they start to decay

even though i’m dying
i feel so still
now i’ve stopped crying
i can feel death’s chill
everything starts to fade away
and i’m left smiling
at the end of my days

yes i’m dying
and i feel so still
there’s no more crying
and i feel it all go down
