Get Away

It’s not enough to be over you

Now that you’re see through

So tell me what to say

To send you on your way

 

Just go on, go on, go on

And get away from me

I need the air that you breathe

There’s no way you can stay

So just go on, go on, go on

And make your get away

 

Let’s stop all this pretend

That we are still friends

Why are you in my way

Is all I’ll have to say

 

Before you’ll go on, go on, go on

And get away from me

We’re not the ones we seemed to be

And today marks the day

That we’ll go on, go on, go on

And make our get away

 

So go and a find a bottle

And some pills to swallow

Whatever helps you cope

Maybe some new dope

 

Just go on, go on, go on

And get away from me

It’s just your past I need to be

And someday I’ll have to pay

Still I’ll go on, go on, go on

And make my get away

Time Away

 

I can’t be here, not right now
I’m due at dawn to take my bow
Though anger may seethe in your golden eyes
Don’t burn your world while I travel the skies

It’s a burden we all bear when a spirit runs free
But to chain yourself to guilt, the modern catastrophe
Give all you can and keep none for yourself
And once all is given may you find only health

This is not a farewell, goodbye or so long
If it were, with these words I would write you a song
This is only time away, a trivial thing
For outside may be winter but in my heart, always spring

May your life be as long as it should be
Don’t burden yourself with thoughts of death post-infancy
As for me I shall watch from up above
Flying free and returning as a dove
