Don't you go now; you're laughing as we fall,
though I don't hold up so well.
I hold on tight, the rain is falling cruel tonight;
it always throws me overboard.

And I'm moved. I'm removed.

Keep it to yourself, for now:
what I am already hoping for.
Save your words, they've got no weight
until they take their stand under hope.

This? An ache in my bones that I know.

I guess you weren't ready, ready for the good days to come.

It's all made of air and sand; so easily it crumbles to the floor.
I hold my breath underwater for days, now I wait to hear you say--

That you aren't ready, ready for the good days to come.
