the best we could

time stops as you kiss me goodbye
tears forever frozen in their place
all we did was the best we could try

your thirst too deep for all I cry
so many trails I cannot trace
and time stops as you kiss me goodbye

you cannot help your heart is dry
bleakest desert without grace
all we did was the best we could try

drawn out missteps ‘neath a lonely sky
our dance chaotic in its pace
now time stops as you kiss me goodbye

to continue on would be a lie
freeze our memories in this place
for all we did was the best we could try

I’d like to climb a ladder to the sky
to rest between the stars’ vast space
but time stopped as you kissed me goodbye
and all I did was the best I could try
