You told me to smile because at least we’re both alive, and I smiled just for you And there’s truth in what you said, but I can’t clear the mantra, chanting, singing in my head It tells me life’s a brittle bone – it says the meat of life is d**h These are dashes on a timeline, we’re just segments of a dash Hardly present now, not built to last All the magic, every moment, dies and turns into the past, to be forgotten as the line expands I hope the two of us are bound together, eternally entwined I hope the waves we make swim out forever, echoing you and I But doesn’t everybody hope for something, knowing nothing stands a chance at lasting? Pleading our cases that we’re too important, spending our seconds angry at their pa**ing But doesn’t everybody hope for something, knowing none of us are meant to make it? Blindly believing that we’re the exception, beating our chests and screaming I am sacred But I know, we were made to be unmade, tied with strings designed to fray I just want our knot together, it’s holding now but not forever Someone or thing has got to pay, it’s given too much to take away I just want a legacy – I just want it all to never fade Don’t we all arrive at the same place where we began? Don’t we all arrive where we began?
