Everything Changes

23 2 0

Leaves keep falling

People leaving

All at once

We’re all changing

Out last autumn

All, together

The lights are fading

Into December

It’s down to this

Growing up and

Moving on

Lose our grip and walk the stage

In cap and gown

We watch it change

Turn around one last time

Out the doors into sunshine

And as we drive away

Everything we knew

Seems to fade

I’ve walked these halls a hundred times

So many wrongs

So many rights

And secrets that I’ll never tell

Mistakes I’ve made

And times I fell

So many things I dismissed

Will become the things

That I miss

It’s all so simple here

With the people I know best

Where will I go after this

Who will I be

Will I even be missed

It’s down to this

Letting go and

Moving on

Lose our grip and walk the stage

In cap and gown

We watch it change

Walk out those doors one last time

Say goodbye and start to drive

Check the rearview as you pull away

Watching everything you thought you knew

Fade away

No more late nights hangin’ out

Full tank of gas

Instead of driving around

“Together forever” is history

As you go left and he picks me

Brand new town

Brand new rules

No senior class

No more high school

Everything is different now

Doesn’t feel like the same town

Same sweet people

Same sweet streets

Maybe what’s different

Is inside of me

Leaves keep falling

People keep talking

Plans for leaving

Our high school days are fading

In our caps

And in our gowns

We say goodbye one last time

And fade into the beginning of

The rest of our lives
