This song feels like the music played during the ending credits. Hey Jon…I miss you. You have to be more real than I remember you to be. You can’t be just a memory. There is so much left of you here…

My grandmother didn’t want to live for so long after my grandfather died. I know why. I feel bad asking her to stay six more years. How selfish was I?  She was tired and deserved to be with my grandfather. I’m glad they’re finally together now.

Father,

Please don’t make me stay here too long. I’ll get the girls to the front doors of adulthood, but after that..I don’t want to be here anymore. All I ask for is Mercy.

Don’t know why I’m still afraid
If you weren’t real I would make you up
now
I wish that I could follow through
I know that your love is true
and deep
as the sea
but right now
everything you want is wrong,
and right now
all your dreams are waking up,
and right now
I wish I could follow you
to the shores
of freedom,
where no one lives.

Remember when we first met
and everything was still a bet
in love’s game
you would call; I’d call you back
and then I’d leave
a message
on your answering
machine

But right now
everything is turning blue,
and right now
the sun is trying to kill the moon,
and right now
I wish I could follow you
to the shores
of freedom,
where no one lives

Freedom
run away tonight
freedom, freedom
run away
run away tonight

We’re made out of blood and rust
looking for someone to trust
without
a fight
I think that you came too soon
you’re the honey and the moon
that lights
up my night

But right now
everything you want is wrong,
and right now
all your dreams are waking up,
and right now
I wish that I could follow you
to the shores
of freedom
where no one lives

freedom
run away tonight
freedom freedom
run away
run away tonight

we got too much time to kill
like pigeons on my windowsill
we hang around

ever since I’ve been with you
you hold me up
all the time I’m falling down

But right now
everything is turning blue,
and right now
the sun is trying to kill the moon,
and right now
i wish i could follow you
to the shores
of freedom
where no one lives

freedom
run away tonight
freedom freedom
run away
run away tonight
