I screwed up the words in the first verse, it's supposed to be "if I die before you do, do the stuff I wanted to" sorry


if you die before I do
I'll probably get a big tattoo
of your name and birthday I'll get wrong

if I die before you do
do the stuff I wanted to
in lieu of flowers, write a better song

I'll probably die asleep alone
so burn my journal
break my phone
remember me the way you thought I was

if you die before I do
I'll start a cult to worship you
mythologize your name and history

if I die before you do
delete my facebook, twitter too
leave a little room for mystery

but if you die while I'm away
I'll feel guilty every day
I'll have to join support groups for the grief

If we die on the same day
I hope our moms won't have to pay
the student debt and interest its accrued
