That was your first year of college Even though you saw it as a means to live your life for you this time You rode your back through the twilight hours

Picking wildflowers, pressed in pages, smearing ink of the words you wrote It took me weeks to build up the courage You saw past my bullshit and told me plain and simple to drop the "tough guy" act See, you were sly with good intentions Demanded my attention But didn't know we'd only have a year like this And the pages on the calendar dissolve And your body, like a battlecry, sang a haunting song We took shelter in the trenches of this war Said "Born the bridges Drain the rivers Let the dead settle the score" I was shaking from the caffeine Hoping this black coffee would be enough to keep my eyes awake for the fight You had an IV full of morphine A mountain for a heartbeat And we watched nurses come in pairs for the rest of the night You said that death bed's a monopoly You're a medical anomaly And each breath that leaves your lungs could be your last Well, I still wonder how it came to this And now I know what losing is The simple life you love could leave so fast And the numbers on my pocketwatch fall off And you're screaming like a symphony Blood in every cough Said "I'm a hostage in my body, can't you see? This room's a prison My blood is poisoned My life's a distant memory" But I still see Roses in those eyes Cold November nights still leave you shaking like before I'll keep you warm And keep the future held at bay 'Cause no matter what you say I'm never giving up this war "Brace for the storm, my love"
