he had a great job
sweet wife
smart kids
he had the good life

slow to anger
loyal friend
he’d last forever
a gentleman

then he lost it so quickly
like it never begun
in the blink of an eye
didn’t see it coming

took eternity to lose my purity
when it finally happened
it happened so easily

it may be a story to you
but my eyes fill with tears and apathy
so i stare at the light until they blister and sting
and when it shrinks to a dot
i will see everything

couldn’t believe it when it’s over
just left there

in the aftermath
stumble along
i get lost in the past
sometimes it’s hard to move on

little in memory
little i share
little i listen
how little i care

you may have prayed to god
for everything you cherish today
the morning that he giveth
the morrow taketh away

couldn’t believe it when it’s over
just left there
all alone
nothing more
only time for sulking
what a bore

i’m gonna find it
i’m gonna find it, get it back
i’m gonna finally overhaul
and blink away it all

who dares to assumes their fortune knows immortality?
i don’t believe in it
when you’re disenchanted and disappointed
it’s a rock that’ll pull you down

time to decide
struggle, bleed, and claw your way back to your dream
or just let go?

yeah, i’ll let it go
