Track 7 of Preclusion I and second single.

lyrics

SAILOR: Remember when I held the Draft in my trembling hand
All that morning light couldn’t shine a drop on our broken band
You saw my eyes, tears of fear and loss, oh, I needed you
Your eyes were dry, your rigid lips replied, “This love’s past due.”

YOUTH: Our love isn’t gone, it’ll never be gone
But when we’re through there’ll be nothing new
Instead of making it worse for you as the bullets and bombs kill off our youth
Please, can I bestow myself as a Goodbye, Gone
And not as another Hello?

SAILOR: Remember how you were the first to take my cold and make it warm
The lessons of growth, I always fell back on you during my days of reform
So where are you now? Is it hidden inside of this stony mirage you call your last goodbye?
If this is it, the end of us, throw caution to the wind and let’s stand as allies one last time

YOUTH: But I told you
Our time has run
And all my goodbyes have been
Said and done

Our love isn’t gone, it’ll never be gone
And when we’re through there’ll be nothing new
Instead of making it worse for you as the bullets and bombs kill off our youth
Please, can I bestow myself as a Goodbye, Gone
And not as another Hello?

SAILOR: But that’s not what I need, no

So I turn to face the sea that all traverse when comes the call, tried and grown
Take a first step in a leap of faith, I’m stripped and bare
Alone

Winds of change don’t blow me down!
Winds of change don’t blow me down!

YOUTH: Our love isn’t gone, it’ll never be gone
But now we’re through there’ll be nothing new
Instead of making it worse for you I’ve made it horrible for myself
How can I bestow a chance for you to make another
Hello?
