goodbye

recording on soundcloud

i meant to say goodbye while i still had the time, but you weren’t ready for that- no, you weren’t ready yet. i meant to keep you close. no, i never meant to let you go so far away from where we were, and where we wanted to be- oh, i never meant to lose you. 

[but dry your eyes, oh i have said all my goodbyes years ago, back when i still knew the words. time is time and it goes by all on it’s own so why can’t we? why can’t we let go? oh, why can’t we? why can’t we?]

that familiar sense of home like a song you used to know. but you’ve forgotten since then, and it feels strange listening again. hot concrete beneath your toes; the smell of flowers ‘neath your nose will bring it all back to you, if you try hard enough it might come true. oh, i never meant to lose you.

[but dry your eyes, oh i have said all my goodbyes years ago, back when i still knew the words. time is time and it goes by all on it’s own so why can’t we? why can’t we let go? oh, why can’t we? why can’t we?]

don’t let it fall, don’t let it hit the ground. i feel much safer down here. don’t let them in, don’t let them hear a sound. i feel much safer down here.

[but dry your eyes, oh i have said all my goodbyes years ago, back when i still knew the words. time is time and it goes by all on it’s own so why can’t we? why can’t we let go? oh, why can’t we? why can’t we?]
