Bluejay - Wheel Of Fortune (A Love Affair)

We were watching wheel of fortune with my sister

When she said she saw spiders in high top sneakers

They were swinging from the blinds

I told her it was just the tumour pressing on her brain

You took my hand

and handed me your strength

Later we hid in the car

and pretended to eat deli sandwiches

We watched cars drive in circles trying to find the exit

And laughed

Then you asked me if I was ready for round two?

And just like that I started balling.

You undid my seat belt and drew me in

For the first time I didn't think about death

All I could see was you

What would I do without you?

The End
