Letter from Blue

Dear Melvin Burgess,I absolutely love your books and decided to write a song about my favourite of yours- The Hit :) I thought you might want to read it? I am rubbish at writing music so I only have lyrics.
I think your books are brilliant and really real to me, I can really feel like the characters!
I loved the concept of Death and thought I’d write about it :)
Here’s my song:

Dropped onto his tongue
The noose had been hung
Dissolving as he swallowed
Dreaming of what followed
Accepting his choice
Ignoring any other voice
So alive yet he was dead
The magic was all in his head
For that moment he knew
Just how quickly time flew

Chorus:
Thought there was only one way out
Swallow just to drown it out
If only you knew its true cost
Everything you’ve now lost
Well here’s the bill
One life for one pill

At first you feel like flying
Embracing love whilst dying
Open your eyes and see
How beautiful everyday could be
Breathe it in watch it go
What comes next? You’ll never now
You’re starting to have doubts
That’s not what it was about…
Maybe this was a mistake
And the magic starts to flake

Thought there was only one way out
Swallow just to drown it out
If only you knew its true cost
Everything you’ve now lost
Well here’s the bill
One life for one pill

So close to the end but still so far
Hope you’re remembered for who you are
The cool metal against your neck
Soon an empty shell will be the only thing left
But you saw what you really had
The good cancelled out the bad
If it comes to slow

Just choose when you go
Thought there was only one way out
Swallow just to drown it out
If only you knew its true cost
Everything you’ve now lost
Well here’s the bill
One life for one pill

“Death is the price for life”

Hope you liked it xxx
Thank you for all your amazing books :)
