I want to be your best friend,
But I can't invite you to my birthday party.
It's just that I stopped having them many years ago,
But I'm good for a drive to the airport.

And I don't want to think about you when I'm waking up,
But it happens every day
And then I want to ask your mom if she can let you out to play,
I thought I was too old, I thought we were too old,
This doesn't happen when you're old…
But I guess it happens.

Oh that light inside of me,
I found it somehow, but I cannot understand,
Does it ever end? Will it ever end?
Does it ever end?

What time is your flight?
I'll pick you up and then we'll get some coffee,
And then it's only twenty minutes down the GCP,
Potholes yawning in the sunlight.

And somewhere in the stratosphere the molecules collide
And thunder echoes over the horizon.
People depart, people arrive,
Is it all by chance? Nothing is by chance.
I know I don't have a chance…
But it doesn't matter.
