EMERGENCY CONTACT

BY NIKKI FORBES

 V1

On the edge of something good

You knew me better than I ever thought you could

 

I was so vulnerable

Trusted you with it all

My heart, my love, my life

 

PC 1

Far away from home

And I thought you were there for me

I was in so deep

I was all alone

You left me stranded

Heartless leaving me abandoned

 

PC 2

Said you were there to protect me

Promised you were my safety

Then where were you?

Where were you?

 

Chorus

Serious as a heart attack

Didn’t think it was too much to ask

Never thought you wouldn’t have my back when 

When I made you my emergency contact

My emergency contact

 

When it all went down

You couldn’t be found

When it all went down
 

V2

You really had me convinced

That you would be there and care

It’s something you wouldn't miss

 

I’d push and you’d pull away

Had to beg for your time of day

You never do what you say

 

I was so vulnerable

Trusted you with it all

My heart, my love, my life 

 

PC 2

 

Chorus 2

Serious as a heart attack

Didn’t think it was too much to ask

Should’ve known you wouldn’t have my back

When I made you my emergency contact

My emergency contact

Where were you?

 

When it all went black

You didn’t bother to ask

If I made it out alright

If I made it out alive

 

When it all went black

You were my emergency contact
