lyrics

I was at the store today
Her favorite song started to play
The cashier gave us the total
It was her birthday
I was watching a movie
Until I saw that scene
I heard her laugh
But it wasn't seen
In the eyes of a stranger
I saw her gaze
Someone was talking
Their words spoke to me
Her most used phrase
I heard a phone
It captured my attention
It was her ringtone
I opened my own
To stare at her number
Read our texts
Her last reply
Where will I see her next
I've kept her dolls
But mom I hate them
There's something so foul
They were once so bright
Now they have no life

(Chorus)
I try to be tough
Act calm and casual
But doctors listen to my heart
They tell me I'm fragile
Who cares what they said
Even though I'm afraid
I put my hand on my chest
Pledge allegiance to the dead

Mom, her seat doesn't swing anymore
Her phone doesn't ring anymore
The 9pm shower doesn't sing anymore
They all think I’m weak
They're so cautious when they speak
The ma'ams
The misters
She'll stop aging
The broken pictures
Forget being a doctor
I need a shield
Make me a cop
I heard her through the stethoscope
One day she just stopped

(Chorus)
I try to be tough
Act calm and casual
But doctors listen to my heart
They tell me I'm fragile
Who cares what they said
Even though I'm afraid
I put my hand on my chest
Pledge allegiance to the dead
