It’s no one’s fault but mine
And there’s no more alibis
Yeah I just ran out of time
Out of reasons and resigned

Won’t try to shake the blame
To unbreak the window panes
Nothing good is gone to stay
It’ll all come round again

Sorry that I missed your birthday
That you might never hear these words
Better if I send a letter
I wonder what would you prefer

Never want to miss the sunset
Or to tell a friend goodbye
Maybe next year I’ll surprise you
With my eyes and ears alive

Imagine with a flutter
A mockingbird in flight
Unwind the sunny summer
It was October overnight

The changing of the chapter
As the leaves begin to glow
Carry with you all the laughter
If it’s heavy let it go
