I Don't Want to Die (In the Hospital)

Album: Conor Oberst (2008)
  • I don't want to die in the hospital
    I don't want to die in the hospital
    I don't want to die in the hospital
    You gotta take me back outside

    I don't want to hear all these factory sounds
    Looking like a girl in a sleeping gown
    I don't want to die in the hospital
    You gotta take me back outside

    Can you make a sound to distract the nurse
    Before I take a ride in the long black hearse
    I don't want to die in the hospital
    You gotta take me back outside

    Help me get my boots on
    Help me get my boots on
    Help me get my boots back on
    Help me get my boots on
    Help me get my boots on
    Help me get my boots back on
    I gotta go, go, go
    Cause I don't have long

    I don't give a damn what the doctors say
    I ain't gonna spend another lonesome day
    I don't want to die in the hospital
    You gotta take me back outside

    And they don't let you smoke and you can't get drunk
    All there is to watch are these soap operas
    I don't want to die in the hospital
    You gotta take me back outside

    Can you get this tube out of my arm
    Morphine in my blood like a slow sad song
    I don't want to die in the hospital
    You gotta take me back outside

    Help me get my boots on
    Help me get my boots on
    Help me get my boots back on
    Help me get my boots on
    Help me get my boots on
    Help me get my boots back on
    I gotta go, go, go
    Cause I don't have long

    Is there still a world out my windowsill
    All there ever was I remember still
    I don't want to die in this hospital
    You gotta take me back outside

    Don't know when it's day or when it's night
    All I ever see are fluorescent lights
    I don't want to die in this hospital
    You gotta take me back outside

    They give me all these flowers and these big balloons
    But I don't wanna stay in this little room
    I don't want to die in this hospital
    I don't want to die

    Are the stars still in the sky?
    Is that fat moon on the rise?
    Feel the earth against my feet
    As the cold wind calls for me

    I don't want to die in this hospital
    I don't want to die in this hospital
    No I ain't gonna die in this hospital
    You gonna take me back outside

    Yeah I ain't gonna die in this hospital
    No I ain't gonna die in this hospital
    No I ain't gonna die in this hospital
    You gonna take me back outside Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
