Words I swallow sadly

They always trail behind me

Words I spout while irritated

There's surely no taking back

When I make words, they smell like lies

When given form, all becomes unclear

I can't make a single thing the way I want it

I'm simply worthless...

I love you, Vivi

Once tomorrow comes,

I'm going to have to say bye-bye

Near turned to ashes

This sleepy town

I leave behind, and you with it

In writing the letter I'd hand to you

I thought back on a lot of things

And yet, as beautiful as you are,

I couldn't write a single word

But why is it that way when it comes to words?

Why do they turn to lead-like lies?

Why do they turn to aimless birds?

Why must they be dirtied?

I love you, Vivi

Once tomorrow comes

Our selves of today will pass away

But just forget

I said anything of the sort

There's not a thing I need to say

In melting amber colors

A balloon falls and a caribou flies

A legless Bronze turkey

And a dancing cuckoo

The noisy, restless news says

"Children are vanishing from town"

Though it seems I'm crying, I'll sing

As a fish quietly watches me...

Even with my heart beyond help...

I walked together with you...

I love you, Vivi

Once tomorrow comes

I'm going to have to say bye-bye

Near turned to ashes

This sleepy town

I leave behind, and you with it...

I let out words

I felt your touch

And yet, I said nothing

I love you, Vivi

I love you, Vivi

But all our love is, is a goodbye...
