Ambulance (Too Fast to be Sad) (1st draft)

This is the kind of song that feels like it came from somewhere else. Came out almost fully formed, like a story I was reminded of.

Once just by chance
I made a friend in an ambulance
I was half man half broken glass
She had a needle but I wasn’t afraid

I’d slap the cuffs
Right on my wrists
I’d get so high I’d arrest myself
For honeysuckle
On a silver buckle
Broken teeth biting on my belt

High in a trance
My life smeared right past
In a blue light
I thought she was dancing
But she was just holding my cold hand

Traveling salesmen
Carrying trunks
You can smell them
coming like skunks
In the distance
If your eyes can focus
That’s how god once
Spoke to us

Trying not to laugh
They pronounced me dead at half past
That priest he pissed his pants
When he heard me start to say hello

Everything can shine
Even the devil sometimes
And while I was busy dying
My lord she made some other plan

Now I’m here
That’s long past
And she’s right here too so glad you asked
About the night she saved my life
I don’t deserve her
But she is my wife

Everything can shine
Even the devil sometimes
And while I was busy dying
My lord she made some other plan
