Light Years

9 Jul

 

I’ve used hammers made of wood
I have played games with pieces and rules
I have deciphered tricks at the bar
But now you’re gone, I haven’t figured out why
I’ve come with riddles, and jokes about war
I figured out numbers and what they’re for
I’ve understood feelings and I’ve understood words
But how could you be taken away?

And where ever you’ve gone, and where ever we might go
It don’t seem fair, today just disappeared
Your light’s reflected, now
Reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

 

With every breath, awakened regrets
Back pages and days that only could’ve been spent
Together, but we were, miles apart
Every inch between us becomes light years now
No time to be void, or save up on life
Oh, you gotta spend it all

 

And where ever you’ve gone, and where ever we might go
It don’t seem fair, you seem to like it here
Your light’s reflected now
Reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars
