HOURS AWAY

They tell me your heart is freer
They say your conversation sparkles
You’re so alive now
How would they know?
Cos I read a different story
And you were dull as winter fog
So cold and quiet
Where did you go?

Cos your hands are still holding onto mine
And my place remains here by your side
And I still get my allotted time
But you’re hours away from being here
Oh you’re almost gone

And that thing you’re wearin on your sleeve
I hear it telling me you’re done here
I’m playing water to your flame
But I commend your consistency
And obligatory phone calls
Yeah just keep that face up
And I’ll believe

Cos your hands are still holding onto mine
And my place remains here by your side
And I still get my allotted time

But you’re hours away from being here
Even further away from me I fear
Have you made up your mind?
Make it clear
Cos you’re already gone
You were never meant for me
And you’re already gone
