soft goodbyes

hey there, you little dreamer
you think youíre such a pretty girl
we all know youíre quite the schemer
trying to escape the crumbling world
 
dear old time will wear you down
and your shackles will start to rust
all this time youíve sang a sirens song
but itís only brought you lust
 
hey there, you little wildflower
i know you think you have it all
where no mere flower will sprout
you just grow up all the walls
 
theyíll try to rip out your roots
and try to tear down every vine
you never really belonged with us
but you always missed the signs
 
hey there, you little minx
i know that you think youíre on lock
and if youíre quiet up in your tower
you can hear the chiming of the clock
 
the time has been counting down
and all your minutes are slowly fading
what did you spend so much time on
that now your body is deteriorating
 
hey there, you little spitfire
you really put up quite the fight
but youíve lost all your hold here
now youíre fading out of sight
 
your kindled flame is now dying out  
and the ash is falling all around us
you wonít be written down in legends
or even that much discussed
 
but hey there, little gust of wind
you think I donít know who you are
i see youíre still holding onto this world
like a fading and lifeless star
 
you canít whip around us enough
for those of us who truly see
but the wind is picking up now
does that mean youíll leave us be
