Song By Abbi

This is based on How Soon Is Now by the Smiths. See what you think.

I am the daughter and the heir of an illness that is criminally painful

I am the daughter and heir of nothing that is curable.

You shut your mouth

How can you say

That there’s nothing wrong with me today?

I am human and I need to be helped

Just like everybody else does

I am the daughter and the heir of an illness that is criminally painful

I am the daughter and heir of nothing that is curable

You shut your mouth

How can you say there’s nothing more to be done today?

I am human and I need to have hope

Just like everybody else does

There’s a club if you’d like to go

You could meet somebody who understands you

So you go and you stand on your own

And they welcome you in

And though you cry, when you go

You don’t want to die

And your doctors say it’s gonna happen now

But when exactly do you mean?

See I’ve already waited too long

And all my hope is gone
