Electrical Conduction

A thousand notes scattered and scarred
Can you die of a broken heart ? 
Electrical problems they say - 

There's a thin line 
As I drive one last mile 
Praying all the way to the grave 

This time I'm alone . 

Hand stitched friendship bracelets 
Gold cross around my neck 
Tattered I am 
Used up 
What will they say ? 

As every dream streams down her face 
I hear the dial tone 
No one left on the phone . 

Can you die from a broken a heart ? 
I read the news this morning 
The pills prescribed are mine .
