Alex slams the door, cries out loud throws his fist into the wall
Falls downs as tears crawl from his eyes
The summer night that felt so right
When he reached out to hold her hand
The thought was haunting him alive
The chance he thought he’d never have to hold her heart in hand again
Turns out to be something he’ll never have
It seems that Sarah moved, went to school, hooked up with the new boy in town
And left the other one behind
So alex waited two more years
In hopes and dreams and vacant fears
That one day he’ll catch her eye
Alex wrote a note that told

The closeness that I get from you,
Is like the feeling I’m the first man to walk the moon,
And it’s so unreal, but I suppose you don’t have a clue,
The city sleeps, and so do you, but my god I’m wide awake and I’m watching you.
And it’s so surreal, but it feels so real.

Sarah gets the note, reads it twice then she breaks down and cries
She never knew he felt that way
It’s too late for them anyway
There’s 50 states that separate
And oceans that stand in their way
So alex hits the bottle hard
Gives out his things his clothes his car
Has plans to make this all go away
The bottle hits the floor
And rolls along the wall to where it meets the mess of pills
He planned to dissipate
The next day sarah gets a call
And flies in for the funeral
At which she sadly stands to give a speech
Shaking, she goes on to read:

The closeness that I get from you,
Is like the feeling I’m the first man to walk the moon,
And it’s so unreal, but I suppose you don’t have a clue,
The city sleeps, and so do you, but my god I’m wide awake watching you.
And it’s so surreal, but it feels so real.
To me

“You know the first time I ever set eyes on you
It was like I finally had a reason to smile
There was something real, something raw, something so true
And yet, I didn’t know how else to tell you
In fact, I didn’t know how to get your attention
And the thought of living without you,
Well…that was more than I could handle.”

The closeness that I get from you,
Is like the feeling I’m the first man to walk the moon,
And it’s so unreal, but I suppose you don’t have a clue,
The city sleeps, and so do you, but my god I’m wide awake and I’m watching you.
And it’s so surreal, but it feels so real, to me
