i met her at a low point
the kind people'd rather give up
than fight through
and if it weren't for her
i might have joined them too
in a mix of luck and hazard
i got dragged out for an hour
that dark room
and if i hadn't gone
i went back for our second drink
to tell the truth i thought she'd just pass through
later she says i'm crazy
only now i start to think that it was true

and now with what i've learned
i'm still afraid that i can't stop or change a thing
time just marches on and it will
leave us in a wake of tinted frames

so now at getting closer
i've no comfort not knowing
what people do
but she picked up on this
and led me from the room
we took a boat to capa
didn't even stop to take in our starred view
and how we passed our time
recognizing the good life
there were days we didn't even leave her room
each day was an occasion
bittersweet glimpses of what i never knew


why we waste our time
why we waste our time
why we waste our time
she left me on the 19th
just two days before i planned to make my move
i hear echoes of sorries
friends with well wishes have begun seeping through
those who did not know of her
say i look as if i'm missing something too
today i start my new life
of what i've lost and what i've learned
and i can't choose
