When I say that I love you,
I guess what I mean is that I love you like a home I have to leave
And I'm thinkin how nothing can stay
How the sun stains the curtains
And the paint flakes away
But it'll always be home, till the memory fades
I love you, thanks for the golden age

When I say that I'm grateful
I guess what I mean is how the sapling is grateful for the seed
And I'm thinking how all things change
How the branches grow tall
But our initials remain
I'll remember you well when the summer is gone
Another year another ring round my bones

When I say that I'll miss you I guess what I mean is that I'll miss you
I'll miss you like autumn misses spring
And I've been thinking how everything dies
Like the reds and the blues on their way cross the sky
And the sunset explodes when it knows that it's time
Before hello, sometimes goodbye

Kiss me once more
Then leave me forever
I know I'm too heavy to hold
Grab both my hands
Kiss me like you mean it
And I'll never know you again

When I say that I love you I guess what I mean is
There's a Power that moves everything
And it pushes the river to sea
And it takes all the years and makes regret into peace
you can't die alone, if you are free
You didn't mean to, but thank you for showing me
