(Words Get In The Way)

Once I called you best friend
Wandered down the road of life together
Now I hear the road you’re on will end soon
A flower in full bloom fading fast

So many cliches, so many standard stanzas
None seem to echo quite my own emotion
Somewhere between my fear and my acceptance, pain and release

You will find me, what can I say?
Words get in the way
Alpha and Omega
A to Z in any other language

Words 6 letters long which stand for four, or thirty at last count
the countless fall

If I were the first to go and not you
Tell me, how would you feel, what would you do?
As for me, think I'll go down to the sea
Wash away the dirt and start anew
