Here I sit wanting for a distraction
Needing to avoid my inevitable reaction

Not wanting to stop even for a meal
Not wanting to stop not wanting to feel

Oh how unfair to lose such a lovely friend
Knowing there is nothing that will cause my heart to mend

I can still hear the laughter feel the beat of your drum
I want to celebrate your life but instead I just feel numb

Looking for a distraction not wanting to feel
Need to keep busy this just can’t be real

Never again will I step up and tread the boards
Trying not to laugh as you steal the applause

What a great loss and dark day for us all
I really don’t want to feel no not at all
