Departures
by Jon Foreman



 

Where does the fire begin and where does it go
How do you finally decide when itís time to let go
Fear is the feeling inside that youíre not supposed to show
Iím losing you

I was looking for some kind of friend, some kind of mercy
But the one that I wanted the most haunts and deserts me
Your last words to me were keep breathing
So Iím breathing in the breath you left behind

All of the times that weíve had they go to my head
Iím spinning in images left, words left unsaid
Iím mourning the mornings Iím missing with you, instead
Iím losing you

People keep spitting out words like they were the cancer
But the word that I still havenít heard is some form of answer
Your last words to me were please keep breathing
So Iím breathing in the breath you left behind

Words are what elegies say when theyíre unsure
Words are what relatives say cause theyíve heard them before
But none of these elegant words make any sense any more
Iím losing you

None of the words that I heard I could believe in
Cause none of the words that I heard made sense of you leaving
your last words to me were keep breathing
So Iím breathing in the breath you left behind
