The Room Opposite

Old lady Jane has the bed in which she’s framed
Her chest rises and it falls
Rises and falls
She hardly says a thing at all
“Would you like some food old lady Jane?”
She only stares back from the bed in which she’s framed

Old man Bob has his wife and his clock
Standing up
Sitting down
Wandering around
“Back to bed old man Bob”
As long as he has his wife and his clock

Name on the wall
I never saw you at all
You came that night
You went before dawn
A sign that says “no entrance, visitors report to the nurses station”
You were only a name on the wall, only a name on the wall
