Draw out the hills tonight
in sweeping orange and white.
The family that you knew will never be the same again.
I packed all the good things last,
and looked back on the past.
Your wreck of the old ’97 hangs in the hall today.
And I remember you painting,
but the picture fades away—
just like everything.
When the car pulled out we said no way.
We couldn’t believe. We couldn’t believe
that the oldest one had gone away.
And we didn’t know what to do,
so we looked around for food and had dinner.
And the transition is so slow and it’s slowest for me.
But the engine starts fast and it’s my time to leave.
And “I only like mutts,” said my grandma in her way.
Well the dogs getting old,
but its lived a lifetime of years
that seem so slow.
So slow.
I don’t want you to leave me now,
But you don’t need me now.
Don’t tell me when we’re breaking and taking vows
that we’ll be better off somehow.
Don’t tell me that we should keep our speed
as we come to Cherrystone Creek.
Or that we believe that the water isn’t cold beneath.
And when the dog went down, we went down.
And we did our best not to frown, but it was hard.
So draw out the hills tonight
in sweeping orange and white.
The family that you knew will never be the same.
