I arrive alive and to my demise it’s another sunny day
A dark and gray glass lottery a victorious dismay
I’m up all night inside my room just trying to ignore the unfortunate color of the sky I live under

I’m going I’m gone but I won’t say for long.
I’m going I’m gone but I won’t say for long.

The hand I drew had more cards in it than should have been dealt
But there’s a card completing everything that I have not yet held
Untie the lines and lives that hide beneath my broken smile
Cuz I can’t crack it anymore
your eyes say stay but your stare says go away
So I will go you’re never going to see me again so I’m told

I’m going I’m gone but I won’t say for long.
I’m going I’m gone but I won’t say for long.

I’ve been listening to the memories from a long long time ago
Snapshots taken by my mind in time
but where were they last night?
When time in a picture arrived

I’m going I’m gone but I won’t say for long.
I’m going I’m gone but I won’t say for long.

Right nows the time to drive a million miles away
But I’ll be here in pictures
Right now the time to drive a million miles away
I’ll make it in my head.

    General CommentA very sad song but awesome. a picture does hold many memories. this happened to me kinda. you like a girl and maybe she wont like you the same way but you have memories and images stuck in your head and you just wish it happened. but im not sure on the real meaning of the song
