Just like ships, we float through each other's lives
Through the waters of beauty and grace


I finally put it all together,
But nothing really lasts forever
I had to make a choice that was not mine,
I had to say goodbye for the last time

I’m going to smile and make you think I’m happy.
I’m going to laugh, so you don’t see me cry.
I’m going to let you go in style.
And even if it kills me- I’m going to smile

The sun is always going to rise up
You need to get up, gotta keep your head up
Look at the people all around you
The way you feel is something everybody goes through

Sometimes not feeling is the only way you can survive.

and you realize one day
choices you've made have taken you
where you don't wanna go
Breathe in breathe out
know that you're alive.
Breathe in breathe out
know that you're alive.

So live, that when thy summons comes to join

The innumerable caravan which moves

To that mysterious realm, where each shall take

His chamber in the silent halls of death,

Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,

Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed

By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave

Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch

About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.

Suddenly there shot along the path a wild light, and I turned to see whence a gleam
so unusual could have issued; for the vast house and its shadows were alone behind me.

If I could turn back time
I'd find a way to remind you
That somehow your could try to give in
And fight the good fight
Oh you didn't have to die
You filled your viens with lies


With heaven above and Faith below, I will yet stand firm against the devil!

And she is led by love. The world moves for love. It kneels before it in awe.

Listening to the young folks, nothing's good enough for them.
Next thing you know, they'll be wanting to go back to living in caves,
nobody work anymore, live that way for a while.

Tell my mother,
Tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying...
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance

Sometimes we don't do things we want to do so that others won't know we want to do them.

I don't want you to give it all up
And leave your own life collecting dust


Why you tremble at me alone? Tremble also at each other!
Have men avoided me, and women shown no pity, and children
screamed and fled, only for my black veil? What, but the mystery
which it obscurely typifies, has made this piece of crape so awful?
When the friend shows his inmost heart to his friend; the lover to
his best beloved; when man does not vainly shrink from the eye of
his Creator, loathsomely treasuring up the secret of his sin; then
deem me a monster, for the symbol beneath which I have lived,
and die! I look around me, and, lo! on every visage a Black Veil!
