Letters To Burn

Number Thirty Nine

Moving On
Packed my bags, bought the first ticket out
to a town that time forgot
Like a promise I will disappear
Yes I will do just what I want

I wanna walk in that howling wind ‘til it scatters all my thoughts
Sit all alone on the river bank ‘til I forget that I can talk
Just listen

They say everyone has a choice to make
To be loved or to be free
I told you once I felt invisible
And I guess by now you see

That what I meant is I’m not all there until I finally leave
Some loneliness is acceptable and some’s just out right mean
It gets even

You told me once I'm not made of stone
And I was blown away
Now I don't know which parts are rubble
or which ones can be saved

I wish I could explain it better but it hurts too much to breathe
My heart don't fit inside my chest so I wear it on my sleeve
So many reasons

The ivy crawls up the garden wall builds a ladder towards the sun
It can’t be climbed but who’s gonna mind if I claim it can be done?

And the sun goes down, and the stars come out
The distance that I felt, I can see it for myself now

Boarded a train to take my memories back
Make up for time i can't recall
Life's too sweet and life's too short
And there's nowhere left to fall

I’m gonna work for my sanity, give it everything I got
Though so far I have cheated death, I know someday I’ll get caught
Just breathing

So let's move on to somewhere beautiful, All shiny new and warm
I'll be yours and you'll be mine, we have never been so young
I know you say you’ll go all the way but that’s not quite far enough
Someone told me that same thing
Someone told me that same thing
Someone told me that exact same thing once
