what with one day you won't be here
coming sooner than i think
touching your skin is much sweeter
temporary and fleeting
like your body will be
and mine won't be far behind
after you're leaving
you're leaving me alone

perfect black triangles
where your eyes used to be
smoke and sun and skin and lungs
the cancer will come to you so young

we're all just a day
and when night comes to each of us
no one knows what happens
to our shadows of smoke

    General Commentand when night comes to each of us
    i will not __
    just shadows of smoke

    is supposed to be

    and when night comes to each of us
    i will not watch what happens
    just shadows of smoke


    I think the song is about losing a loved one.
