Em Bm Am C Bm Am C D

Verse 1

     G               Bm               C            G       F#
In a nightmare, I am falling from the ceiling into bed beside you.
        Em                    Am             C               D
You're asleep, I'm screaming, shoving you to try to wake you up.
         G                     Bm              C                  G 
And like before, you've got no interest in the life you live when you're 
     Em                  Am               C                       D
Your dreams still follow storylines, like fictions you would make.
         G                 Bm                C                G       F#
So I lie down against your back, until we're both back in the hospital.
    Em             Am                 C                     D
But now it's not a cancer ward, we're sleeping in the morgue.
        G                 Bm              C           G         F#
Men and women in blue and white, they are singing all around you,
           Em              Am                  C             D
With heavy shovels holding earth, you're being buried to you neck.
        G        Bm         C            G          F#
In that hospital bed, being buried quite alive now.
              Em              Am                    C            D
I'm trying to dig you out but all you want is to be buried there together.

You're screaming,
and cursing,
and angry,
and hurting me,
and then smiling,
and crying,

Verse 2
           G              Bm                  C              G     F#
I've woken up, I'm in our bed, but there's no breathing body there beside me.
Em                Am              C                 D
Someone must have taken you while I was stuck asleep.
           G            Bm                       C              G         F#
But I know better as my eyes adjust, you've been gone for quite awhile now,
                 Em           Am             C               D
And I don't work there in the hospital, they had to let me go.
       G              Bm                   C                 G       F#
When I try to move my arms sometimes, they weigh too much to lift.
            Em         Am               C            D
I think you buried me awake, my one and only parting gift.
        G               Bm                 C                G      F#
But you return to me at night, just when I think I may have fallen asleep.
     Em         Am                        C            D
Your face is up against mine, and I'm too terrified to speak.
