The Lyrics

A friend of mine said at a nursing home, "They can't see you, they can't hear you, but they can smell you..." and it sparked this song.
Makin my way downhall,
Walkin slow, aging shows,
Shuffleboard-bound

Starin blankly ahead
Just tryin to find, tryin to find
My old dog (he's dead)

I can't see you
I can't hear you
But I can smell you...

If I could walk
Without my cane
Do you think I
Won't go insane
Cuz you know every day I have
To take 1000 pills

It's always times like these
When I think of you
And always draw a blank in my mind

Cuz I know something's wrong,
It should belong
Living in my ailing memory

I can't see you
I can't hear you
But I can smell you...

If I didn't slip
And break my hip
And if my bowel
Never ripped
I think I'd walk
1000 miles
If I could just pee straight
Again

I, I, don't wanna take my pills
I, I, don't want to have my cane
I, I, don't want my gown with frills
I, I, don't...

Makin my way downtown,
Walkin slow, aging shows,
Shuffleboard-bound

Starin blankly ahead
Just tryin to find, tryin to find
My old dog (he's dead)

I still can't see you
I still can't hear you
I can still smell you...

If I could walk
Without my cane
Do you think we...
Won't go insane
Cuz you know every day I have
To take 1000 pills

If I could see
The bright blue sky
I'd know right then that
I don't want to die
Cuz you know med'cines
Only last a while
And I don't want to leave you
With nil

If I didn't have to take that...
Last Pill
