Slowly, one by one, the petals started to fall from you,
But you always had a brave face during times of difficulty.
No one would even realise your end was near as you took it all in your stride,
Your skies were always blue when mine were dark and gloomy.

Now your journey has come to an end and we go our separate ways,
The cycle of life churns on regardless of what we feel or care or do.
Time diminishes pain but leaves good memories intact forever,
I will always remember the flower of the sun that stood tall against the storm.

My heart is paralyzed
My head was oversized
I’ll take the high road like I should
You said it’s meant to be
That it’s not you, it’s me
You’re leaving now for my own good

That’s cool, but if my friends ask where you are I’m gonna say

She went down in an airplane
Fried getting suntanned
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
Help me, help me, I’m no good at goodbyes!
She met a shark under water
Fell and no one caught her
I returned everything I ever bought her
Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies
And ways to say you died

My pride still feels the sting
You were my everything
Some day I’ll find a love like yours (a love like yours)
She’ll think I’m Superman
Not super minivan
How could you leave on Yom Kippur?

That’s cool, but if my friends ask where you are I’m gonna say

She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
Help me, help me, I’m no good at goodbyes!
She dried up in the desert
Drowned in a hot tub
Danced to death at an east side night club
Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies
And ways to say you died

I wanna live a thousand lives with you
I wanna be the one you’re dying to love…
But you don’t want to

That’s cool, but if my friends ask where you are I’m gonna say
That’s cool, but if my friends ask where you are I’m gonna say

She went down in an airplane
Fried getting suntanned
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
Help me, help me, I’m no good at goodbyes!
She met a shark under water
Fell and no one caught her
I returned everything I ever bought her
Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies

She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
Help me, help me, I’m no good at goodbyes!
She dried up in the desert
Drowned in a hot tub
Danced to death at an east side night club
Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies
And ways to say you died

 

 

She lived a life of solitude
She lived a life in vain
She lived a life in which there was
A strong ongoing pain
She had no friends on which to lean
And cry her problems to
She had no friends to give her love
And hope and kindness too
She thought about it day and night
She lay upon her bed
Her mind made up she grabbed a gun
And put it to her head
Just then a ring came from the phone
She pulled the gun away
Her mom was on the other end
And just wanted to say
“Happy birthday my, dear girl.
Today is just for you.
I care for you with all my heart,
I hope you know that’s true.”
These words ran through her mind so much
The gun was down for good
She changed her mind about her life
And then she changed her mood
She thought about this special day
And what her mom had said
The gift her mom gave her that day
Was the gift of life, again.

When the clock approaches 12
And I am all alone waiting
For the sound of the bell
And you walk right in to my arms
Teasing pleasing and resplendent,
Kissing holding touching moaning
Pleasing smiling and promising,
Another year of your magical spell
