Goodbyes and Other Tragedies

August 4, 2009

Sure, I believe in gravity

But will I let it take me down

I just don't trust the softness of this ground

Why is everyone is such a hurry to leave?

They finally got up on two feet

Then they found the door

They are no more

Who are they anyway?

The sun is only good for burning

My thoughts are weary for learning

You can't stay

Constantly changing scenery

Leaves my heart a mystery

The only thing that stays the same

Is my joy every time it rains

Sure, I believe in oxygen

But you'll still find me choking

On the dust turned up from driving too fast

My tears stayed longer than you

I find I'm always acting the brood

You made your appearance

You now have the clearance

To make a dramatic escape

The sun is only good for burning

My thoughts are weary for learning

You can't stay

Constantly changing scenery

Leaves my heart a mystery

The only thing that stays the same

Is my joy every time it rains
