When I was a kid
I counted on my parents to pull me through
But now that I’m big
I’m thinking ‘bout my parents from their point of views
But I feel so small
Thinking ‘bout how one day I’ll be nothing at all
For now I just live
And recollect the good times when I was a kid

When I was fourteen
An aura blurred my focus and sent me wandering
Got caught up in a screen
An outlet for me to live vicariously
Of all the movies I’ve seen
This one feels the most like reality
Of all the places I’ve been, with you feels the most like normality

Been one year since you took your leave
After aging 40 years in a matter of weeks
Poured your morphine down the sink
So I’m not tempted by your eternal sleep
You never age in my dreams
And when I close my eyes I don’t know which you I’ll see
You slipped right through the seams
But on cold nights your warmth still envelopes me
