Left my hometown for a big town.
Now the big town is my hometown...
and it isn’t big at all.
How this city became small.
And I'm leaving again.
But I’m being OK.

Fancied myself the wandering type.
Dreamed of paths and never ever destinations.
Figured in the work but not the time.
But I’m being OK.

Now freshness is in the skin of children.
Believing makes it so,
and every time we think back
we were dying to get old.

Our moments breaking all time records;
speeding like gunfire.
Rounds and rounds of movement
and the moment still expires.
Never to be had again.
Reliving takes up time and then
you’ve lost the moment twice.
Yeah, I’m being OK.

And the picture isn’t finished.
Shake the box and they’re all in it!
Put the pieces all away.
Everything is there...
No one really cares.
We put it back anyway.
Take it apart anyway,
in the end.

But we’re being OK.
