It pains me to try and believe that this was the last ride, so maybe I’ll try and perceive me from the outside. I’ll let all my comforts fade, and turn in my uniform. They can keep their thankless days and all the ways that they keep warm. You’re life was miles away, but I stayed here. Just a promise and a wave, and one more year. But I really need today to face my fears. It’s my only way to say goodbye and let you know that time better treat you right. So thanks for believing it all, thanks for the last line. If ever you need me to fall, this was the last time. Because I’m not afraid to bleed, and it’s not too late to try, but you can’t afford to sit around this town and watch me die. California was the dream, but I stayed here. Just a promise and a wave to make it clear that I really need to pay for all those years. It’s my only way to say goodnight and keep you safe, but time better treat you right. I’m young enough to fight away the memories, but time better treat you right. Goodbye.
