the storm clouds on the horizon draw near tonight
she tastes the salt in her mouth
from the tears in her eyes
forced to watch the sand fall, but
can't find the way to tip the hourglass
you can't waste a moment
when you don't have much time to pass

and she says, just take my hand.
join me in this darkness.
i need to feel something warm tonight.
and if the sun rises tomorrow,
i'll own just one more smile,
one more smile to take to an early grave.

you can find me in the east coast sky
in this sorrow all we said was mine
and for just a fleeting moment
then i'm gone in the blink of an eye.

hospital bed greets
balloons to the ceiling
"get well soon."
and the friends sit in silence
reflect on _
and the words come to mind
try to squeeze out a grin
say it's not that bad
for my mother's sake.

the sun can shine and the rain can fall
but some flowers never bloom.

and she says, just take my hand.
join me in this darkness.
i need to feel something warm tonight.
and if the sun rises tomorrow,
i'll own just one more smile,
one more smile to take to an early grave.

you can find me in the east coast sky
in this sorrow all we said was mine
for just a fleeting moment
then i'm gone in the blink of an eye.
you can find me in the east coast sky
in this sorrow all we said was mine
for just a fleeting moment
then i'm gone in the blink of an eye.
