The Goodbye Song

I told you that words mattered, all those conversations were the reason I was falling. But I’ll give you this— you’re beautiful when it’s raining and there’s nothing but the weather.

There’s a future for us, but I’ll give it up and to know I saw it coming I’ve been through that. 

They can all see the way you’ve been watching me, seeing nothing but my absence….I’ve retreated. 

I told you that words mattered, all those conversations were the reason I was falling. But I’ll give you this— you’re beautiful when it’s raining and there’s nothing but the weather.

There’s a clock on the wall with a broken heart tired of tracking the illusion of our victory. 

I don’t know anymore why the earth still spins, you’re a coward and a bully— god I hate that.

You have to admit it was so good when we started, a real intoxication. And how many times did we try and fail together and take pictures of us laughing?

Oh can you feel it now?

What a pretty death.

I feel blown away—

Nothing gold can stay.
