Favorite Quote:
Just another casualty.
It's sad but true.
And even dead I'm still ahead
of most of you.

If I could
Don't you think I would keep you from depletion?
If I could
You know I'd do anything to save your precious skin.
Take my sweaty, love coated hand.
Jump when I get to three and I'll help you land.
Let me get a good look at you.
Let me check you in the rearview.

This isn't right.
But it's not left either.
You don't need saving,
you don't even have a fever.
Why did you call?
Why are you even here at all?
Why are you doing this to me?
I treated you better than you even deserved.
I took your heart; that's why it's still preserved.
I saved your feeble life.
Your fractured, shattered knife.
I'll save you this one last time
If you promise not to say I told you so.
I will take you out of danger.
Never put you in it.
Because I want you in my heart.
And not playing out in traffic.
