Going Away (Adagio)

lyrics

I don't know just what to say
Words don't mean much
And I don't know just where I've been
Where is the world I am living in?
I'm going to clear my head out of the way
And what's left will stay
So meet me on the inside
We both know the time's arrived
We've got fortunes still to find
And I don't want to see it end
But we've got nothing left to spend
Waiting here life's passing by
So it hurts to say but I'm going away
I have my dream and it leads this way
And I know you, you've got your things to do
I want the world to remember you
I'm going to clear my head out of the way
And what's left will stay
I'm going to shine like gold shine like the day
And my heart will start to play
So meet me on the inside
We both know the time's arrived
We've got fortunes still to find
And kiss me for the last time
But just as long as I'm alive
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
She left alone when the summer came
I packed a bag and I did the same
But like the home that I'd left behind
Her memory flooded, overflowed my mind
I've been longing for your touch
I never thought it'd hurt this much
I just want you back again
So meet me on the way home
And I'll find out if I'm alone
I just want you in the end
