have not yet made peace with the falling leaves

“I don’t wanna die in the hospital
No, I don’t wanna die in the hospital
I don’t wanna die in the hospital
You gotta take me back outside

I don’t wanna hear all those factory sounds
Looking like the girl in the sleeping gown
I don’t wanna die in the hospital
You gotta take me back outside

Can you make a sound to distract the nurse
Before I take a ride in that long black hearse
I don’t wanna die in the hospital
You gotta take me back outside

Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots back on

Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots back on

I gotta go, go, go
‘Cause I don’t have long

Yeah I don’t give a damn what those doctors say
I ain’t gonna spend another lonesome day
I don’t wanna die in the hospital
You gotta take me back outside

They don’t let you smoke and you can’t get drunk
All there is to watch are these soap operas
I don’t wanna die in the hospital
You gotta take me back outside

Can you get this tube out of my arm
Morphine in my blood like a slow sad song
I don’t wanna die in the hospital
You gotta take me back outside

Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots back on

Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots back on

I gotta go go go
‘Cause I don’t have long

Is there still a world at my windowsill
All there ever was I remember still
I don’t wanna die in this hospital
You gotta take me back outside

Don’t know when it’s day or when it’s night
All I ever see are fluorescent lights
I don’t wanna die in this hospital
You gotta take me back outside

They give me all these flowers, these big balloons
But I don’t wanna stay in this little room
I don’t wanna die in this hospital
I don’t wanna die

Are the stars still in the sky
Is that fat moon on the rise
Feel the earth’s against my feet
As the cold wind calls for me

I don’t wanna die in this hospital
No, I don’t wanna die in this hospital
No, I ain’t gonna die in this hospital
You gotta take me back outside

I ain’t gonna die in this hospital
No, I ain’t gonna die in this hospital
No, I ain’t gonna die in this hospital
You gotta take me back outside”
