Maybe we could break your ankle, clean and unsuspiciously.

An ER trip, a doctor’s slip,
    Em                   C     G    Am
and you could share your pills with me.
C                G                        D      G
Won’t it feel so good, though, when we’re lying,
C             G                        D
side by side, can’t move, and I’m not trying?

Em   G          C
2000 milligrams each.

A hotel by the pharmacy with drinking straws in toothpaste tubes.

Stash them with your toiletries and I will share my pills with you.
C              G               D            G
Little Michael sleeping in the child safety seat,
C              G                  D
lying with the windows rolled up, in the August heat.

Em   G          C
3000 milligrams each,
Em   G          C
4000 milligrams.

G                      D
We’re driving down the interstate,
       Em                 C
you’re feeling great, you scratch your wrist,
    G               D                   Em                C   G Am
and we pretend your kids, your husband, all you left does not exist.
C           G                      D G 
And in some motel that night we’re lying,
C            G                  D
I can barely whisper “it’s like dying.

Em           G           C
Baby, do you know what I mean?
Em             G        C
Well baby, did you hear me?
Em         G         C
Well baby, you fell asleep.”

G                  D		    Em            C
I know I’m weak, I won't deny we’ll see our trial sometime soon.

But when i know we’re fucked,
               Em                C     G    Am
I’ll halve the pile and share my pills with you.
C                G
Cause we’ve felt fully in our bodies,
Am                  F
and we’ve felt totally alive,
C                    G
so we’re prepared to float above this
Am              F  C    Dm
dirty bed where we both lie.
         F    C    Dm           F  C
Where we lie, lie, lie. Will we be fine?
F   Em   C
Not this time.
