Shipping Out

She’s shipping out
She’s shipping out
She’s shipping out so soon
She’s shipping out
She’s shipping out
Over the hills and past the moon
She’s going past those green fields
With their weeping willows and their whispering grass
She’s going past those green fields
With their silent cries, their unsaid goodbyes
She’s shipping out
She’s shipping out
I wish I could have said goodbye
I wish I could have looked her in the eye
But she’s shipping out
She’s shipping out
Over the hills and past the moon
I knew it would be soon
I have to smile, smile, smile
Laugh, laugh, laugh
I have to smile, smile, smile
Stay grounded, grounded, grounded
But it’s so hard, hard, hard
I wish I could write my soul on a card
Because it’s so hard, hard, hard
To smile, smile, smile
And not sigh, sigh, sigh
Not cry, cry, cry
Not space out and defy
Not reach out and punch
Not run away
Not run away
If she’s shipping out
If she’s shipping out
Then I have to find the courage to maintain home base
I have got to get rid of this pitiful me
This disgrace
But I’m not shipping out
I’m not shipping out
Anytime soon
So I will stay and abstain from going over the hills and past the moon
