Dawn Golden I Won’t Bend

It’s a death,

You won’t say my name

You won’t watch me sleep

You won’t turn my eyes

You won’t shut your mouth

When I hold my breath

When I break your stare

When I’m caving in.

I speak to you while you’re sleeping

A sad code that goes “I can’t breathe anymore”

And I’ve got your back,

But you’re changing right in front of my eyes.

I’ll keep you here for now.

And I won’t let up.

I’ve got plenty to hide.

It’s a death,

You won’t say my name

You won’t watch me sleep

You won’t turn my eyes

You won’t shut your mouth

When I hold my breath

When I break your stare

When I’m caving in.

I want to keep you inside

Say our prayers

And live in a lie

Pull the stars that hang in the sky

And sleep with our bodies frozen in time.

I’ll keep you here for now.

And I won’t let up.

I’ve got plenty to hide.

It’s a death,

You won’t say my name

You won’t watch me sleep

You won’t turn my eyes

You won’t shut your mouth

When I hold my breath

When I break your stare

When I’m caving in.
