I watched you pull the thread that hung below
The hem of everything you'd grown to know
You pulled it with a sigh
Said everything must die
I watched you pull the thread and let it go

Our youth was spent desperate to see
The things that lay just barely underneath
The layers of our minds
That fall away in time
So we filled our little brains and tried to see

I couldn't tell you where we were trying to go
So I held your hand and figured that we'd know
When we'd arrived
At our chosen time
I'd kiss your mouth, and I'd let you go

Your voice was sweet and it didn't betray
The words you used when you said you couldn't stay
You said life was just a game
That could never stay the same
So I lit a smoke and watched you drive away

I couldn't tell you where we were trying to go
So I held your hand and figured that we'd know
When we'd arrived
At our chosen time
I'd kiss your mouth, and I'd let you go

And I held you in the back of my mind
As my body felt the wrath of father time
But as I slowly decay
You'll never age a day
Cause I held you in the back of my mind
