Even with my eyes closed
Funny how I know it’s harder, it’s harder now
Young girl in my
young girl days, thinking I could live for always
But like an ocean tide
I’m drawn back inside and I know
Seasons pass like sand inside a glass
and nothing, nothing returns
Standing with the friends I’ve made,
I’ll race them to the grave
Well who won, won the extra days?
When you take away the years toll
on the waters wide, shallow high and low
In the autumn sky,
happy to know I’m going home
Even with my eyes closed,
funny how I know it s finally,
has it finally begun?
