GREAT EXCUSES

When you come back after crossing
seven seas and lands,
when you show up half destroyed
and lonely,
I’ll be gone.
We both know
I won’t be waiting.
I’ll be gone.
We both know
I won’t be waiting.
Even if you bring a treasure
from the golden town,
even if you jump across
ten fires I’ll be gone.
We both know
I won’t be waiting.
I’ll be gone.
We both know
I won’t be waiting.
And you can give all those great excuses.
And you can spit all your favourite lies.
Gripping holes bent out my palace.
Evenings brought me down.
Years went by
and I wrote letters that said
I’ll be gone.
We both know
I won’t be waiting.
I’ll be gone.
We both know
I will be leaving
to a place,
to a place at the top of a high
endless mountain,
or perhaps
to the faraway cold frozen heart
of a glacier.
And you can give all those great excuses.
And you can spit all your favourite lies:
that you were heading home,
that you can’t figure out what might be wrong…
But, little sweetie,
I will be gone.
So don’t try,
so don’t try to find out where I am.
You are unable
Never try,
to discover the place where I am.
I’ll be leaving
to a place,
to a place at the top of a high
endless mountain,
or perhaps
to the faraway cold frozen heart
of a glacier...
