It was like wind,
Here one day, gone the next.
If only it could be a trick in my mind,
Then you wouldn’t be gone.
It was like summer,
Ignorance was our crime.
But you know we’ll remember
No matter the time.
It was like a clock
Ticking down to the end.
We watched in shock
As you became one with the wind.
You changed in 1949, whatever happened to this land?
Seems you’ve come so far since ’23.
Forty five feet of advertising, you still stand.
I see you as a utopia, there on Lee.
The whole world watches you.
We see you like a light
As we look for something true,
For something right.
Shine like a star in the night.
Some have found nothing better.
After all, you’ve helped their plight.
Hollywood you’ve stood tall,
I hope you never fall.
Millions of times, I’ve wished heaven had a phone line.
I guess, then, everything would feel fine.
‘Cause to hear your voice one more time would
Heal every wound overnight.
And even though they told me,
Every once in a while – I wonder if you’re truly free.
Longing for you has put this whole in my heart,
Just know I wish we never had to part.
All the time I wish you were still here,
‘Cause then you wouldn’t be there – I
Keep telling myself I’m alright, but
Soon I know I’ll give up the fight.
Over time, I felt this heaviness.
Now all I feel is emptiness.
