Where do you go, when all the scales fall away
When you start to repeat the cycle, will you try to avoid that day
Why do you go, to be alone with someone else
I never ever saw that as a thing that you espoused
Please sit down.
You know how I said everything would be fine
I don’t think I knew what that meant.
I don’t think I knew that all these things were on your mind
And so we danced
And so we tried to hold each other, the way that we did then
After we fell apart, from all these things we’d saved
And even the fall was fine I thought, before everything, everything was rearranged

So lie. Don’t say a thing.
It’s all the same dissimilar, wanting everything.
So you said. We were both the same, both afraid, both utterly unprepared
So you retreated
But you didn’t realize it was staring you right in front of you
You could have had it all. We could have been free
The way that we planned, the way that we thought we could see
When we were young, just some time ago.
Might as well be the setting sun.
Might as well be. For everything we are
Everything we have become. We’re still not the setting stars
Or the day that has just begun

Until then, there’s nothing that can be done
If you go any further forward you’ll burn out faster than the falling sun
I knew you well. I knew your soul.
I hope you dance. I hope you fly to great heights
But I have no faith in you.

So we depart. A day or two. We leave this place.
We leave ourselves on a fallen star.
