We knew, from the beginning
that you weren't staying,
and decided we would never
have to say goodbye.

But as I face your rays,
and the wind ruffles the gold
locks my fingers tangled in,
and kissed you one last time

We knew it was goodbye,
we just never said it.

And as the boat left its shore,
and the rain blotted out tears,
I wondered to myself,
Can't you shine just a little longer?
