i shed tears but don't know if they're tears of joy or sorrow
to leave behind a time when i never saw tomorrow
each day was each day and a moon was every moon
and all of my commitments could be canceled by the news

great places bring great people and some really bad ideas
and we all got into trouble though it never seemed to keep us
from the wants considered needs and the needs that never leave us
"what completes us?" is a question never solved
so many plans we made left unresolved

why should i cry to leave behind a place that made me bleed?
i needed this with witnesses to show me what i mean
when i say that the boy inside is all i'll ever be
redirect me if there's something i don't see
