Please mister won’t you spare a moment?
I have nothing left to give,
Please mister won’t you give a minute,
Time is money left to live,
Find me a hole that I can crawl in,
Doesn’t have to be so big,
Let me know when the light goes down,
Make my blindness go away,
Let me know when darkness rules,
Finally have a home to stay.
So alone in this small world,
Shrinking slowly onto me,
One by one, the small lights leave me,
Darkness stays a friend to me,
One, my things that once defined me,
Two, my seeds I hold so dear,
Three, my oath that held me tightly,
Four, my mate who fled in fear,
Five, my dreams that fed me visions,
Six, my love that strangled me,
Seven, my breath that clamps my throat shut,
Eight, my lungs now failing me,
Nine, my health and life in shambles,
Ten, my will abandons me.
Lesson learned, easy to see,
Count your blessings,
Leave me be.
