30 days, love
until I’m gone
and I’ll do my best, love
to leave you quietly
30 nights, love
to make it all right
no, it’s not enough time
to hold a life
30 moments
and a kiss
never had a wish
quite like this
30 times, love
to see the sun rise in your eyes
30 motions
at a party feelin’ like the ocean
30 skies, love
seein’ the stars passing me by
30 breaths, love
and I’m getting tired
can’t see my sun set
but I feel it go
30 nights
to hold on tight
and I have one moment
to let it leave
30 days, love
this is all I am
this is what I’ve done
I’m so sorry
30 moments
to give it all away
say I feel no pain
and tell a lie
but it’s not enough
to make it all right
30 days, love
for you to feel that I’m movin’ on
30 breathings
gettin’ darker, do you feel me leaving
30 tears, love
can you see me going away
30 goodbyes
this is all I have, love
but I’m takin’ one moment
and then I’m gone
then I’m gone
30 more, love
and then I’m gone
