On Going Away


I’m doing just fine, that’s right
I'm talking to you again, this time unheard
I’m looking down on you, but you’ve always been taller
I’m stuck where I am that doesn’t change how you are

You’re doing great, I love what you did with my room
Maybe you can’t see me sing or dance anymore
but I’ve gotten louder through the years
thunder from near and far, my feet stomping
me yelling the words of your favorite song
I’ll shine bright, not like the sun
I burst in the lightning, I am the moon
the light in your darkness
Even if I could never be this in my own

A subscription of being away from the people I love
This has come at an expensive cost
It would be less if I never got lost
I’m as close to you as I’ve ever been
Different from back then, I don't know what it means,
Postcard make it to your place,
A perfect strategy to combat this homesick supreme

Life is hard to swallow, not sweet in taste
I lost my ability, I’m sorry, I’m not so brave
instead of sitting right next to you, I’m in a grave
