4/10/18: Almost Gone

 

We were so close I couldn’t see
That everything was wrong
I studied you now over me
Myself and I went on and on
On into the rest of life
And love where they belong
At least until they come again
What’s left is almost gone

Gone
Did we ever have to go
Gone
Gone is all we thought to know
Gone
Took me far as I could go
Ah but then again

I was all of sixteen years
When everything was clean
The hope the strength the fear
All welcome to the machine
Then it all came crashing down
Like some slow sad sad song
Lay to rest the best we had
When sure that it was gone

Gone
Gone is all I’ll need to stay
Gone
Leaves more than I take away
Gone
Find it in myself to play
And yet not pretend

Every time I run away
A part of me turns back
For the future fore to sway
Dust to dust fade to black
As the fires that free the world
Stand watch until the dawn
That day all will wonder why
What’s left is almost gone

Gone
A woody sort of word gone
Gone
One could never hold for long
Gone
Anyone who hears this song
Oh please think again

We were so close I couldn’t see
That everything was wrong
