Goodbye Song

I should write a song for you
But I don’t know what I could say
That our postures haven’t said before
In some better way

You cannot break my heart
I can only break my own
We are alone together
Together alone

When our lips have no more words
When our dreams have no more tears to cry
That’s when our fearful prayers are heard
To whisper, Goodbye

So our future has no future
And our present is our past
We pull our sacred statues down
Stone hearts made to last

When the laughter of our children
Starts to freeze us in our tracks
The path out of this underworld
Means no turning back

Feel the world that presses down our chest
As leaden as another lie
One last time taste each other’s breath
To breathe, Goodbye
