A/N: Wrote this on the long drive to North Carolina while the guy I like took a plane to Colorado. This is probably the most personal thing I've written in a long time, and because it's so near and dear to me I got a little sweary. So...sorry for my language! Anyway, feel free to enjoy! :D


Copper Glistens in the Sun

Airplanes falling from the sky
Like pennies down a wishing well
I wish you well.

You left this morning, no goodbye
I had a speech of things I'd never tell
Can you tell?

It was barely dawn before you left
The plane you boarded headed west
While my mind still raced, I grasped for sleep
And I couldn't hardly even eat
I kept wishing that this wasn't real
And that I didn't know just how it feels
To have no fucking clue of where you are
And to be wide awake in a sleeping car.

Fuck, fuck, fuck, it falls apart
Ripped at the seams, my graceless heart
I knew I should have said goodbye
But I couldn't talk or else I'd cry
You know I'm not so good with words
But you can hear me talking through the birds.

You left this morning, no goodbye
My pennies drowned the wishing well
I wish you well.

Like pennies down a wishing well
My pennies drowned the wishing well
I wish you well
I think you're swell
It hurts like Hell
I wish you well.
