DEPARTURES

DEPARTURES
1. DEPARTURES




DEPARTURES
(Verse 1)
always and forever you say
don't forget to call when you get there
at this place, you throw down your bag
how long will this mundane last?

take a shower, get dressed
lay down in bed
turn off the lights in this unfamiliar place
thinking about everything you have back home
and now you're alone

yesterday you saw a special face
it reminded you of your favorite space
home seems a thousand miles away
even though it's just an hour drive
it never gets easier

(chorus)
departures always are something to go through
forced goodbyes are always rushed and unforgiving
these feelings you suppress inside
these new rules by which you abide
are you truly happy?
you come and go like a stranger in your own home
regularly on the roam
constantly on the clock
schedules never seem to fail
you hope that there will come a day
when you can sit down and stay
never having to uproot
and love this place called home, no goodbye
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
when a man and a woman
start to be torn
from what they know
again and again
living in dreams
they leave their love behind
until they can no longer
and they discover a new life

I love you more than yesterday
you are the place in which I belong
hold onto me tightly
and tell me I don't have to do a thing

your jokes always make me laugh
the time we spend together is my happiness
you've got to help me out of this mess
make me your new home

(chorus)
eternity is here to stay with me
this time it just ticks by slowly
never ever speeding up
I'm hoping that these few years will pass by quickly
and I can pick up the pieces of what once were
(end chorus)

(bridge)
trying to find what's the meaning of love
before it gets midnight
I just want to see you 
I just want to feel you
I just want to be there by your side
under the same stone
under the same moonlight

my name is written on the walls
that must mean that I belong here
just because my name is on some paper
doesn't mean they can't be moved
I want to go home so bad
this sickness has stricken me
only therapy will be able to ease the pain
a doctor can't prescribe me medicine
nothing will let this go

(chorus)
departures always are something to go through
forced goodbyes are always rushed and unforgiving
these feelings you suppress inside
these new rules by which you abide
are you truly happy?
you come and go like a stranger in your own home
regularly on the roam
constantly on the clock
schedules never seem to fail
you hope that there will come a day
when you can sit down and stay
never having to uproot
and love this place called home, no goodbye
(end chorus)
