To watch your red balloon fly away
It’s such a disappointment
Nothing to say, much like today
I’m hurting because of you, I saw you fly away
Nothing I can change today

Chorus:
Too bad you couldn’t stay, didn’t see you on your way
Now there’s no taking back
or saying what I meant to say
And now the only question is why,
while the answer is denied
The world looks so much different without your smile

Reality hit me hard today
The past is gone away, hope I’ll remember it
And all those times we used to play
Those memories of you and I when we were young
Stir my heart alive and shadow the death that has become

Repeat Chorus

I’ll preserve your life inside
To mend your absence for the rest of my time
I know you touched so many lives
I finally see you in your true light
I see all the things I failed to see before
And the world looks different now

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentThis song is raw emotion. Dealing with a huge loss. These words have gotten me through many long days lately and I love Marshal for writing them and sharing his pain so openly.
