just like it always happens time for you to go
you have to watch those fingers
tie it in a bow
you always knew that it would come
but you didnít really know
youíd get to watch it for so long
how could you know?

the sunshine on your tablecloth
thatís your favorite thing
it comes in fast through the glass
and touches everything
the shadow of your coffee cup
is a crater on the moon
youíre in a rocket blasting off
and itís leaving soon

your eyes open and it's dawn
where did that day go?
you have a feeling that you know
from a long time ago
still and all youíre really here
thatís all you really know
