You're moving on

to greater things,

so spread your wings,

and learn to fly.

You're going past

your childish dreams,

the make believe,

the loosened seams.

.

I'm left behind.

I'm all alone.

When you're gone,

remember me.

I'm in the dark,

the shadows long.

I'm staying strong,

for you and me.

.

You're headed up

the mountains steep.

You're going to creep

past monsters old.

You'll swim the river

into the sunrise.

It won't be a surprise

when you forget.

.

That I'm in your past.

I'm in your youth.

I still love you

though you're far away.

I'm waiting here

till you come home,

when I won't be alone,

and I'm in your arms,

but for now

.

I'm left behind.

I'm all alone.

When you're gone,

remember me.

I'm in the dark,

the shadows long.

I'm staying strong,

for you and me.

.

Find a pair of arms to hold you at night.

I'll find a way to stop holding on tight

to the kid I know

you used to be,

the child I loved,

who still loved me.

.

I'm left behind.

I'm all alone.

When you're gone,

remember me.

Remember the times

I held you close.

Always know

I love you so.

.

I'm left behind.

I'm all alone.

When you're gone,

remember me.

Remember the love.

Remember the hope.

My love is strong.

Remember me.

.

Remember me.
