I miss you in my mind but I don’t feel it anymore
That’s part of the cycle to close an open door
I hate to say it but I know this will go away
Our right now affection will be feelings of yesterday

To push to pull to give and take
To love and send it away
To hide to seek
To have to say goodbye to every person that you meet

It’s a strange dilemma taut with possibilities
Forcing confident decisions keeping agile in the knees
It’s for the better if we say that we know
but inside we’re just making it up as we go

To right what’s wrong
To gracefully just move along
To numb to feel to not be scared
Shaking hands with stranger lands

Overwhelming odds for underwhelming dreams
Chasing tails in circles Is as good as its gonna be
Sound and sonic distractions making our bodies sway
The sensation of progression keeps us going anyway
