I put it on the piano setting and start to play the first few bars of Coldplay's Amsterdam I'd taken great pains to teach myself. "Come here," I sing quietly. "My star is fading."
"I swerve out of control
If I, if I'd only waited
I'd not be stuck here in this hole"
I stand on my toes and look over the Altoids display to see if I'm alone.
My star is fading.
I see no chance of release
I know I'm dead on the surface
But I am screaming underneath."
The lights go out.
