if you asked

i don’t wish your lover would die
but if he had an accident
i wouldn’t be overwrought
with sorrow
i would never raise a fist in anger
but if he truly made a mess
i would be on a plane to you
by tomorrow

call it jealousy or just need
but before bed i pray he vanishes
i don’t wish he would die at all
just disappear
if he packed his bags in the night
took a cab to the end of nowhere
be it the desert or a lost island
far from near

i would go to hell for you
if you just asked me to
an eternity of us together
holding you close forever

if it were the first day of his end
the beginning of his joyous last and he was no longer next to you
i would rejoice
so here’s to him driving off a pier
being abducted in the cold night
lost at sea with no hope of rescue
it’s his choice

it isn’t as if i wish he would die
just silently go off and disappear
so you could forget his scent
is that bad
i would run to comfort you love
hold you close to all night long make you forget how you felt
not be sad

i would go to hell for you
if you just asked me to
an eternity of us together
holding you close forever
