Ode to my Daughter

Seems like only yesterday
Life belonged to runaways
Nothing here to see
No looking back

Every sound monotone
Every color monochrome
Life began to fade into the black

Such a simple animal
Sterilized with alcohol
I could hardly feel me anymore

Desperate and meaningless
All filled up with emptiness
Felt like everything was said and done

I lay there in the dark
And I close my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive

Still I tried to find my way
Spinning hours into days
Burning like a flame behind my eyes

Drown it out
Drink it in
Crown the king of suffering
Prisoner; a slave to the disguise

Disappear the only thing
Bittersweet surrendering
Knew that it was time to say goodbye

I lay there in the dark
And I close my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive

No reason left for me to survive
You saved me the day you came alive

You’re not killing me
I can finally breathe
Come alive…

(Foo Fighters, “Come Alive”)
