If we were to put you down
Would you hit the ground running?
If you don’t open your eyes
How can you see what’s coming?
And it looks like you have hit the ground
One too many times
So I’ll try harder to hold your hand
Because the fall was never kind
And if you were to go right now
I’d cry all the way home
But in the bat of an angels wing
You’d fly all the way home
You can hear the choir sing
Calling you home
But if you were to go
You’d leave me to this
A heart can only beat
Until it wears itself right through
Yours has beaten all the odds
And all I’ve said to you
And those words: I should have held my breath
And kept my big mouth closed
And those regrets: the ones you’ll never hear
Will remain unopposed
And as you slip from me
What can you hear coming?
Does a lone trumpet sound
Or are there many hooves a-drumming?
And though I’m sure that we will meet again
I’m still sad to see you go
I’ll miss the times we hung around
I’m dammed sure you already know
