This won’t be an easy day, I gently lay you in the car. One last ride together, you and me we’ve come so far
I think about the memories, and of all the birds, I thank you for the conversations no one else ever heard
I might have waited way too long, I hope you understand. No easy way to let you go, i guess that’s just who i am
I’m sorry for the pain your in, hell you can barely stand. It ain’t about me no more, I’m gonna do the right thing at hand
A dozen years of free love, given unconditionally. Turns out to be not so free, in the end it’s killing me.
Paid for all at once, and paid for in full. Still never known a better deal, and I probably never will.
Our last trip to Canada, we’re both so young and free. That tall grass point on Matheson’s will for every stay with me
They lay you on a table underneath the tree, give us both a minute, feels like eternity
I watched you take your last breath, now i’m a grown man, just cryin like a baby, your empty collar in my hand.
