Gaslit Rumours

I die new For a life
When She Found everything
her wrist Fell in love
with A Fighting back machine

As she passed away Bored
Summer’s day Slashed the rain
Of 16 mercies fell the small tear
life with her Mother It’s the same

Any rumours I want to start
the lord takes the Whole blame
She goes down on her knees ahead
From that car I think a Girl Came

of 18 prays But once
Got to support life In
Then 16 Birds of sense
were up And singing On

Hit by a mother’s Girl tears
Christ reads the note again
Life Didn’t succeed And Ended
don’t Thank of Jesus find Him

I always expect her again
In the summer And laughing sky
God’s blasphemous candles
burn humour in her sick mind eye

Girl of 16
Whole life ahead of her
Slashed her wrists
Bored with life
Didn’t succeed
Thank the lord
For small mercies

Fighting back the tears
Mother reads the note again
16 candles burn in her mind
She takes the blame
It’s always the same
She goes down on her knees
And prays

I don’t want to start
Any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God’s
Got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

Girl of 18
Fell in love with everything
Found new life
In Jesus Christ
Hit by a car
Ended up
On a life support machine

Summer’s day
As she passed away
Birds were singing
In the summer sky
Then came the rain
And once again
A tear fell
From her mother’s eye
