    Death Cab for Cutie - "What Sarah Said"

    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 breathes as I said to myself that I'd already taken too much today As each descending peak of 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

    But 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 will lift their heads
    But I'm thinking of what Sarah said that "Love is watching someone die"

    So who's going to watch you die?
