Years From Now

(McDonald/McAlinden)

            

Lights under the sky
Reminding me how
We'll meet again tomorrow.
Imagining years from now
With the backdrop ever changing,
We'd remain the only constant.
I was fine trusting you.
You were clever and inspired,
Building all the bombs that I threw.

 

The years from now we spoke of then have come and gone.
What I've done out of fear of being alone.
But I won't leave, I won't leave the one I love.

 

The sky stretches out
Like a tablecloth above us
Laid out with a priceless silver.
Now I look to St. Jude.
You said we're in this together,
'Til we're dust or ether, always.

 

The years from now we spoke of then have come and gone.
What I've done out of fear of being alone.
But I won't leave, I won't leave the one I love.
