When's the last time we talked?
Couldn't remember if I tried
The very first time I saw you
I swear I almost died
It's been that way ever since
Photosynthesising your soul

Am I here?
Should I be?

And when you bloom
You bloom ultraviolet
And it makes me feel happy
It makes me feel good

Why on Earth are we suffering
Shovellin' at the coal face of ****?
Am I dead or alive now?
It's getting hard to tell
It's wet cold and grey here
When you're not around

Why am I here?
Should I be here

Picking my bones
Digging some holes
To fall into
To disappear down?

Please don't go
Please don't leave
I'm not killing time
It's killing me

And when you bloom
You bloom ultraviolet
And sometimes I'm happy
Sometimes I feel good.
For K, my sunshine. I love and miss you more than I could ever put to words.
