Tearing up the map
Into loose ends.
Staring at the marks
Wondering where they went.
Longing for what seems
Like a mystery.
Weathered spirits while
In bad company.

High hopes can’t last forever.
High hopes will only let you down.
Even though familiar faces change,
Even though good people drift away,
Forget their faults and sob stories.
Lift your eyes and sail up north.

Drifting off the tracks
Chasing frayed threads.
Glancing at the path
Harboring old regrets.
Lingering on events you can’t foresee,
Hollowed out and wandering
Stormy seas.

High hopes can’t last forever.
High hopes will only let you down.
Even though familiar faces change,
Even though good people slip away,
All along it was sob stories
That filled your sails and lead you astray.

How much can you swallow
Just to keep your head afloat?
How long will you stray on
A place beyond the empty shores?

How much can you swallow
Just to keep your head afloat?
How long will you stray on
A place beyond the empty shores?
