I JUST REALIZED THAT YOU WILL BE IN MY HEART UNDOUBTEDLY FOREVER
AND YOU WILL REACH WITHIN THE STRINGS OF MY JOY
AND PLUCK TO YOUR HEART’S CONTENT
AND I WILL LET YOU
AND WE WILL FALL AND RISE LIKE SUNSET AND SUNRISE LASTING INEVITABLY
BUT THE DAILY TOIL THE MUNDANITY WILL TRY US DAILY OUR INSANITY WILL BE ON THE LINE
THERE’S A LESSON OF GREATNESS FOR IT WE CAN STAY OUR SELVES
AND NOT DIE FOR THE MISSING OF EACH OTHER
WE WILL LIVE AND BREATHE AND FLY
AS DEAREST OF FRIENDS FINEST OF FANS AND DEEPEST OF LOVERS
    NOBODY TOLD ME IT WOULD HURT LIKE THIS
    NOBODY MENTIONED THE PAIN
    NOBODY TOLD ME ABOUT THE DUES I’D HAVE TO PAY
    NOBODY KNEW ENOUGH TO SAY
MAMA MUST HAVE TRIED AND DADDY HE LIED SAYING THAT EVERYTHING WAS GONNA BE OKAY
BUT     NOBODY TOLD ME IT WOULD HURT LIKE THIS
    NOBODY KNEW WHAT TO SAY
LEAVES ON THE TREES, THEY’RE SO SMART
THEY JUST FALL DOWN WHEN THEY DIE
LACE ON MY WINDOWS AND CRYSTAL GOBLETS ON MY SHELVES
TAKE THESE SYMBOLS AND PLACE THEM DIRECTLY IN MY HEART
SEEMS LIKE IT MIGHT BE TIME TO FORGIVE MYSELF BUT    
    NOBODY TOLD ME IT WOULD HURT LIKE THIS
    NOBODY MENTIONED THE PAIN
    NOBODY TOLD ME ABOUT THE DUES I’D HAVE TO PAY
    NOBODY KNEW ENOUGH TO SAY
