  • A summer of John Wayne
    Getting older
    Reel after reel
    And playing old soldiers
    With old wounds
    You know how that feels
    And a summer of searching
    The underworld
    An arrow in my heel
    And the winding down of days
    And the speeding of time won't change

    But I know you say
    Nothing good lasts forever
    Some things burn bright
    But burn themselves out to embers

    And these weather conversations
    And small talk
    Steal my hours away
    And I gave away my best to strangers
    Day after day
    And the winding down of days
    And the speeding of time won't change

    But I know you say
    Nothing good lasts forever
    Some things burn bright
    But burn themselves out to embers

    Your love is a cold
    Cold place my dear
    The seasons change
    Those ghosts appear
    And every sound
    Is an echo of yesterday
    And suddenly I fall
    Through the cracks in time
    And I'm standing here
    With your hand in mine
    And I turn around to see you
    There's no one there

    But I know you say
    Nothing good lasts forever
    You will forget
    But I will always remember
