Fall(ing) MAG

Today, as I look around, I see autumn.
There’s a certain sadness in it, but I know the sun can’t stay forever.
With every change of mood I’m closer to the falling leaves.
I might just become one.
Would you still remember me?
The songs I sing are all about you, even when they’re not at all.
I take the heartbreak everywhere.
All the same places that I take the memories.
I can’t function because something inside of me says, “No, I won’t forget.”
And today, as I look around, I just see you.
There’s a certain sadness in it, but I always knew you couldn’t stay forever.
