ALL OUT OF GALL

gall-bladderA few weeks ago, I was admitted to the hospital for a serious case of acute pancreatitis and cholecystitis. By the end of the 5-day stay, I was released with one less organ: my gallbladder. This rendition of Air Supply’s “All Out of Love” is dedicated to that little guy, wherever he is now.

“All Out of Gall”

I’m lying alone with my hand on my chest
Thinking of you ’til it hurts
I know you hurt too, but what else can we do?
Tormented and torn apart

I wish you could carry the bile in my tummy
For times when I eat too much fat
It would make me believe in ice cream again
And French fries and chocolate (and chocolate)

I’m all out of gall, I’m so lost without you
I know you weren’t right, suffering for so long
I’m all out of gall, what am I without you
Those nasty gallstones were just too strong

I wish you’d come back and digest my food
During these long, winter nights
I’m reaching for you, are you feeling it too?
I think of you with every single bite

And what would I eat if you were in me right now
I could stuff my face until dawn
There’s no easy way, we had to part ways that day
I’m better off now that you’re gone (you’re gone)

I’m all out of gall, I’m so lost without you
I know you weren’t right, suffering for so long
I’m all out of gall, what am I without you
Those nasty gallstones were just too strong

Oooh, what are you digesting now?
What are you digesting now?
What are you digesting now?
What are you digesting now?

I’m all out of gall, I’m so lost without you
I know you weren’t right, suffering for so long
I’m all out of gall, what am I without you
Those nasty gallstones were just too strong
