for storage (and b/c i finally finished it and set it to music)

it was thanksgiving night a year ago today
when the tiny dancer left and gave it all away
cried my heart out that night and then chose to let it go
took it as a gift and ran into the unknown

took out my revenge on the dancer who broke my nose
by sleeping with her friends and other girls she knows
but it never really worked b/c i'm not the type
to talk about the girls that took me in at night

rebounded around with the model from my past
thought she could be amazing if she ever came back
but one day after she kissed me like before
she got on a plane and i didn't see her anymore

chased a leprechaun around some clubs and bars
we made a lot of rumors but it never went far
i still grin when i remember the time i kissed her hard
behind a closed door while her date waited in the car

spent a lot of time with a girl in her teens
funny enough she became a great friend to me
still feel a bit sad that i could never be
the boy that could give her everything she needs

tank girl, miss bacall, cheekbones came and went
i still miss their kiss at times i must admit
so much promise unfulfilled but i suppose that's how it goes
when the ring that they wore was not my own

so now i think i'm falling hard for this girl i used to know
who gave me chicken pox on a night so long ago
one beautiful halloween full of promised fantasies
she's running from conclusions towards this new dream

and here its a year later from the day it fell apart
and looking back i'm thankful for the phoenix in my heart
a testament to survival and the return of melody
a hymn to the resurrection of a forgotten dream

-chorus
a life, undone
as time, marches on
like a funeral song
for our love

-outro
there's the nail where you hung me on your wall
when i was still your brightest star
was i cool, was i clever, was i beautiful?
before a love tarnished left your heart oh so cruel

do you miss our sex, do you miss our talks?
are you happy now your finally done?
can you hear the sound of this symphony
can you still hear my voice when i raise it to sing?

I remember your eyes as I watched you fall
when we tried to love in spite of it all
I wish you well, still can't believe your gone
but I guess I'm glad I'm glad we've both moved on

so here's one more kiss, one last song
take it with you, it won't last long
a tearful goodbye with such dry eyes
a funeral song for another life
