when we needed goodbyes
they were always on their way
when we needed to find
hours filling up the day
they were always on their way

when we talked about our lives
you'd look at me and say
'do you learn anything at all,
do you learn anything at all?'
except that i won't be coming back

when we needed the time
it was always on its way
when we needed the eyes
to see ourselves each other's prize
they were always on its way

when we talked about our lives
you'd look at me and say
'do you learn anything at all,
do you learn anything at all?'
except that i won\'t be coming back

i am not an anchor
though i wish that i were
i would stop the sighing ocean
from waving us in motion
from the times we breathe our breath
to the emptiness of death
and return a second's gaze
from the heaviness of days and days and days
free the aged from corruption,
children from disruption
seconds of contentment
from the rocks below the trees
and the burning in your knees
singing to the breeze
the inescapable disease of the fucking time piece
that will let you swallow down the days and days
days, days, endless days

when we needed goodbye
when we needed goodbye
when we needed goodbye
they always were late
