I'm Living Right Now

This is an extremely personal moment
You wanted to be a part of that
This is your chance, can you stand back
While I cry before we know each other

We’re dreaming about heaven right now
All my friends, we are gathered
We are sad but how long are we to wait
Can you tell me, why can’t we say goodbye?

Watch a man lose control
You will know so much more about me
Watch me say goodbye to a memory
You won’t have to say hello to a mystery
I am as sad as you were

I’m wide awake now, is it more than you
When you talk to me, will you know what to say
That’s ok, nobody does anyway
Even people who knew me before you

When we leave, we’ll talk about it
It won’t be carved into a tree
Only our hearts
You will know me before I know you

Watch a man lose control
You will know so much more about me
Watch me say goodbye to a memory
You won’t have to say hello to a mystery
I am as sad as you once were
