departures / arrivals

you probably heard it
from somebody
but i want you to know
it’s all true
i’m just figuring out
what it is i need to do
countless reasons
have held me up
i’ll give it some time
to sink in for you
but sooner then later
it’ll hit you too
i’m gonna be ready
to strike off
another agenda
on my mind
i don’t know
if it’s easy to define
last night i was worried
now that it’s out
i feel fine
i wrote it out
in small print
to try and hide
now it’s blown up
growing faster
with no end in sight
i guess what it is
i’m trying tell you
is i’m sick of regretting
the past lives
i’ve been resetting
wondering if
i’m doing it right
the clock
has been ticking
my mind’s been on fire
so here it is
it’s not worth forgetting
the time i spent
with my heart
on my sleeve
well i put it back
it might be
hard to believe
so i’ve got
some support
of my own
keeps it beating
when it’s being
mistreated
i’m going on
with everything
i’ve got
it didn’t feel possible
turns out it’s what i want
cause no one owes me
anything
gonna keep on giving
until i can’t breathe
what’s the matter
if what i’m doing
is the right thing
don’t need you now
to keep it alive
got a new tune
to keep a beat to
got a new way
to survive
just thought i’d
drop you a line
it might be sad
but it’s the truth
i’ll still think of you
from time to time
but my focus
is out there
on the future
always waiting
for me to find
the next thing
that will keep
my heart beating
just waiting for me
to arrive
