I saw you by the water, your shoes were getting wet
I looked for your smile but it wasn't there..
Its not that you were sad, though I knew you were running away.
It was time for you to go you said,
There was nothing I could do.
We’ll always have the memories,
We’ll always have our games …
Just hold on to what you can, you told me.
And I cried when i should have laughed,
Because it might have been the last time things would be so simple..

Farewell to you, farewell to youth
Farewell to you farewell to youth

It was an autumn day the air was cold
But isn't this what happens
When you get too old

Weightlessness and make believe
Were packed away in your bag
I asked if I could go with you
But you said my place was here
That my shoes were different
They couldn't travel like yours
With nothing left to say
You slowly walked away

You looked back just once but I could hardly see your face
What was that look what was that look you gave

It was an autumn day the air was cold
But isn't this what happens
When you get too old

Once more I whispered as you disappeared
Farewell to you, farewell to youth
