lyrics

Heard her say you flew through time and space
In a flash of light
To say that you’re okay

Just that night, you showed up in my dream
Said that you’re alright
You were gone the next day

I don’t know if there’s an afterlife
We stumble, then it’s over
But if it’s possible to make it through...
Well, that was you

I wonder what you’d say about these times
Bet you’d laugh at that,
Knowing what you’d miss

You got off one stop before the crash
If I questioned “why”
You shrugged, “because it is.”

You always set your sights on outer space
No lower, no mediocre
And never settle for the bland untrue
Yeah, that was you

You believed
There is good inside of everyone
Just build it, we’ll see it
Hey, my friend
Can you see us from the other plane?
Or are we gone?

In this time where time stands stoney still
Yet races, it still races
What’s the voice that keeps me strong and true?

“The why is the is.”
-Dan Gaibel (1975 - 2019)
