First Sight

lyrics

I recall the time with a twist and a smile.
I wrapped my fist on the door.
You shook your head; your hair followed your “no”
You made it clear what it was.
I didn’t care. I was getting lost
I wanted to find the good gold at the bottom
of a red rainbow because it was my gold that I lost in an effective storm
But I never got it back, and I couldn’t understand at all--why
So you retreated to your heart and reinforced the walls with gum.

The next 10 years were bitter, straight, and long.
I did not forget you, but the cold must keep on.
Then everything suddenly changed. we were not prepared.
Your life just simply melted away. Oh no oh no oh no
And I fell straight into love with you the moment that you died
My heart turned itself in right when your eyelids gave up.
Someone once told me this:c “When you become to attached to something, it is a gift when that something is taken away.”
