Music Prompt #14: “Kettering” performed by The Antlers

Hello again!

Mighty Fall has come around again bringing spiked apple cider and raking accessories. Personally, I am gearing up for NaNoWriMo this coming November. It is a challenge taken on by participants from all walks of life, all nationalities.

Never fear, I will still be here to provide you with music to enjoy and make great art. 🙂


I wish that I had known in that first minute we met, the unpayable debt that I owed you.

‘Cause you’d been abused by that bone that refused you, and you hired me to make up for that.

Walking in that room when you had tubes in your arms, those singing morphine alarms out of tune.
They kept you sleeping and even, and I didn’t believe them when they called you a hurricane thunderclap.

When I was checking vitals I suggested a smile. You didn’t talk for awhile, you were freezing.
You said you hated my tone, it made you feel so alone, and so you told me I ought to be leaving.

But something kept me standing by that hospital bed, I should have quit but instead I took care of you.
You made me sleep all uneven, and I didn’t believe them when they told me that there was no saving you.
