Stay Breathing -Billie Eilish

When I stop blinking

and the clocks keep ticking,

don’t open my eyes.

When I stop running

and the world sprints on,

don’t put me on your back and run.

When I stop taking deep breaths

and the trees keep giving it away,

don’t give me yours.

When I stop talking

and the humans keep babbling,

don't talk about me.

When I stop eating

and food is sprouting,

don’t shove it in front of me.

When I stop blinking,


taking deep breaths,


and eating,

bury me next to the flowers,

where the wind blows,

And the humans won’t find me.
