Save me space

One down, like ten to go
Who am I gonna grow old with, cry with, die with
I’m alone. I would say rest but you never did
So smoke in peace
I love you even though you’re deceased
I think of you all day, at the least
I’m taking your name for lease and I’ll tattoo it on my heart
To show you were a piece of art
This is just a start of the never-ending race
You’re tied to me lace after lace
Put your soul in my place
My turn to shoot myself in the face
I’m not crazy, but I’ll keep the gun just in case
Thinking of you is like getting hit with mace
They think you’re just another suicidal case
They better get a bigger folder
Save me space
