Who's Gonna Watch You Die?

What Sarah Said by Death Cab For Cutie.
And it came to me then that every plan
Is a tiny prayer to father time
As I stared at my shoes in the ICU
That reeked of piss and 409
And I rationed my breaths as I said to myself
That I’ve already taken too much today
As each descending peak on the LCD
Took you a little farther away from me
Away from me

Amongst the vending machines and year-old magazines
In a place where we only say goodbye
It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend
On a faulty camera in our minds
And I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose
Than to have never lain beside at all
And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground
As the TV entertained itself

‘Cause there’s no comfort in the waiting room
Just nervous pacers bracing for bad news
And then the nurse comes ‘round and everyone lift their heads
But I’m thinking of what Sarah said
That love is watching someone die

So who’s gonna watch you die? So who's gonna watch you die?

I think if you've ever sat outside of the ICU, watching someone you love being taken away from you a little every second, you'll be able to relate with what the song is saying.
Sitting in the waiting room; oblivious to your surroundings; only the thoughts of that person clouding your mind; praying, hoping they'll be fine.

I still remember you, cuz, like it was only yesterday when we were laughing our heads off.
It feels like yesterday when we were arguing about football, you teasing me, all the sleepovers, the random games and stupid fights.

I know you're in a better place now.
R.I.P. cuz.

I love the meaning of this song, and the feeling it is sung with, enough to give someone goosebumps. Everytime I listen to it, it feels like I'm transported back to that day, and all the memories come rushing back as i'm caught in a whirlwind of feelings.

On a much more happier note:
2 exams left.
And one's just MCQ's on Friday. And that's just revision.
So the party is gonna begin soooooooon. :)

I go now.
Take care homies!
