The grind of life

Sometimes it takes years to realize,
Sometimes it can pass us by.
This is the end of everything.
This is the grind of life.

I wave goodbye, I say goodnight
I kiss you on the forehead.
My life’s a dream, you are a ghost,
The world, confined to my bed.

Insanity, reality,
It’s all really the same.
I drove you, and you drove me,
Who’s to say what is or not insane?

Sometimes it takes years to realize,
Sometimes it can pass us by.
This is the end of everything.
This is the grind of life.

Goodnight yellow bird

Goodnight yellow bird,
you sang me a song,
but without melody;
I can’t sing along.
Goodnight freedom,
how can I miss you?
If I’ve never dreamed,
my life isn’t true.
Goodnight to
bright lights, happy faces,
bodies shuffling,
different places.

Goodnight yellow bird,
I’ll sing you a song.
I’d save you a memory,
but you’ve already gone.
Goodnight freedom,
we had happy days,
with sunshine and laughter–
we go our own ways.
Goodnight to
everything I’ve loved.
the lights disappear
when I look above.

Goodnight yellow bird,
I’ll say with a tear.
I’ll never see your face,
you’ll never know my fear.
