Going Going Gone

  • Daniel made a pass
    We started flirting after class
    Stealing hats and trading jackets
    Locking lips and braces, brackets
    After dinner, before dark
    We'd meet at the same bench in the park
    Sweaty palms, averted eyes
    Wasn't sure if he and I were going out

    Going out
    Going out, ooh
    Going, going out

    The sunset threw a tantrum
    It wasn't ready to go just yet
    Mother Earth said, "Time for bed"
    It resisted and the sky went red
    The color filtered out
    Like pulling teeth out of a cloud
    The bloody battle ended
    No, the sun can't break the habit
    Of going down

    Going down
    Going down, ooh
    Going, going down

    Daniel in ten years
    Grabbing asses, spilling beers
    Another ten and he'll have a daughter
    She'll grow up and he can't stop her
    Back on the bench, making plans
    Watching the day end hand in hand
    I always had to be home by eight
    My dad would kill me if I was late
    I'll be going now

    Going now
    Going now, ooh
    Going, going now
    Going, gone
    Going, gone
    Going, gone, ooh
    Going, going, gone Writer/s: Lucy Dacus
