I can't stand the silence
It's too loud
All the beeping, footsteps, mummers
Seem too loud
They're talking about us
About last night
How we were at the bar
Sitting close together
Meredith swears we leaned closer and closer as the night went on
We were drunk
Now here we are
I'm lying in your hospital bed with you
I can't leave you again
It's my fault you're here
I shouldn't have left you in front of Joe's alone
I'm never leaving you alone again
That guy came out of nowhere
Coming straight at you and you couldn't even move
It was my idea to get a drink after work
Now you're here
I can't take this
I'm just laying here, numb, holding you
You seem so cold
Right as I drift off to sleep with you, Yang walks in
"Holy shit! What are you doing?"
"I'm sleeping. What does it look like?"
"Get out of that bed before Bailey sees you!"
"I don't care. Addison needs me!"
I didn't even realize I was screaming until you stirred in my arms
Your voice is raspy and hoarse
I hold you tighter whispering in your hair
"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to wake you."
When I look down at you again
Your blue eyes seem duller
Things get blurry as my eyes start to water
"Baby, don't cry."
You whisper as you stroke my cheek
"Baby? You're calling me your baby now?"
I asked, smirking
"Shut up you. Or no kissy kiss."
We never talked to each other like this before
And then I noticed she was resting on the morphine button
She was high as a kite
"You're a little happy with the morphine huh sweetie?"
"Sweetie? No. I'm your your "
And that's as far as you got before dropping your head on my chest and going to sleep
"You're my one and only."
I whisper in your ear
