We all become memories after having gone.
Dancing in the light flickering behind their eyes.
I'm hoping it's showing my heart never stopped growing.
I'll take comfort in knowing...
... this melody has never been sung with these words.
We come and then we go.
Our hopes will tend to fall and flee awry.
Trying to make the most even after we all know we're giving up the ghost.
A final glow before we burn.
