Fade Away

Why is the Earth crashing down?
Why can’t I hear a sound
Of what you say
Don’t fade away
Memories don’t fade away
You know the stars will keep shining
Even when you stop
And the stairs will keep winding
After both your knees have locked
People will keep talking
After you can’t bear the noise
And the strong will keep on walking
When you don’t feel very poised
Words they keeping on jumping
Off of the page
And faster your heart’s pumping
When you’re enraged

Moments, they pass
You hope memories can last
But can’t you find sunshine
In the most minuscule thing
Can’t find courage
With a broken wing
Can’t you move on
Just to find pleasure in life
Can’t you just smile
Despite all the strife
Say what’s to say
Please don’t fade away
Say what’s left to say
Just please don’t fade away

What if sadness overcame everyone
Would you be unique
And try to be the blissful one
What if everybody just looked the same
Perfect hair, perfect nose, even a universal last name
Can’t you see the tricks
People hope you fall for
You know you don’t have to fix
All of your said “flaws”
Don’t force yourself into what seems “current”

Moments, they pass
You hope memories can last
But can’t you find sunshine
In the most minuscule thing
Can’t you find courage
With a broken wing
Can’t you move on
Just to find pleasure in life
Can’t you just smile
Despite all the strife
Say what’s to say
Please don’t fade away
Say what’s left to say
Just please don’t fade away

Depressing songs aren’t all you must write
Because happiness will weaken
Just like all insight
If you forget to seek them
Don’t assume you know the world
Just because you have some friends
The truth will start to unravel
Once you’ve reached the bend
Please don’t fade away…
Don’t forget to appreciate sunshine
And don’t fade away

Don’t walk away
Just cause everyone stays
Listen to your heart
It’s the most honest part
In this world
That keeps on turning
And you’ll make miracles

Moments, they pass
You hope memories can last
But can’t you find sunshine
In the most minuscule thing
Can’t you find courage
With a broken wing
Can’t you move on
Just to find pleasure in life
Can’t you just smile
Despite all the strife
Say what’s to say
Please don’t fade away
Say what’s left to say
Just please don’t fade away…
