A little under a year ago this song was my goodbye song.
But before that I listened to it in the sunshine and smiled til my face felt like it would break
I listened to it the sunny afternoon Those Eyes wouldn’t look at me straight and I could could feel my heart breaking
I listened to it the night I said goodbye to S and cried til I couldn’t breathe
I listened to it the morning my bus pulled out of Buchanan Bus Station and I cried til my heart bled
I listened to it when I got on a plane to start a new life after saying goodbye to the one person in this world I wouldn’t hesitate dying for and I cried some more
And today I’m listening to it, with only four weeks left in this amazing little apartment, with seven weeks left in this amazing country, and today the tears, they just won’t come.
