There’s a sadness now.
All the things I always knew
I know now.
All the things I knew were true
They’re true now.
When the sun burns my skin
It hurts a little now.
When the sky turns grey for the evening
My throat closes.
I always knew it all. But I didn’t.
I knew how it went. But I didn’t.
I could sigh and be sad for it
But I never really was.
And now, in the night, there is no peace
No innocence. No calm.
There is loss, there is dread, there is clarity.
This is the way it always was
And this is the way my world ends.
Like he said – no bang.
