issues submit about masthead

I’m quarantined inside my room
The country shut down because of a flu
We can only leave our homes to go buy food
And for some reason I’m only thinking of you

I have big problems that are very grave
But my mind chooses to be in another place
I’m wondering if you’re watching a movie feeding
Popcorn to another face

Sitting in my bed during a quarantine
A virus broke out and infected the world
The country shut down almost everything
And my only thoughts are of a girl

Meanwhile no one can go out in the streets
The police will stop you to pay a fee
I just need to buy some toilet paper
But really I need to walk to forget her

I’m quarantined inside my home
I still have two more weeks to go
Two more weeks of feeling alone
Fighting the urge to call your phone
