Fare Thee Well - Indigo Girls

Fare thee well my bright star i watched your taillights blaze into nothingness but you were long gone before i ever got to you before you blazed past this address and now i think of having loved and having lost you never know what it's like to never love who can say what's better and my heart's become the cost a mere token of a brighter jewel sent from up above fare thee well my bright star the vanity of youth the color of your eyes maybe if i'd fanned the blazing fire of your day to day of if i'd been older i'd been wise to thick the heat of those long summer evenings for a cool evening i began to yearn but you could only feel upon the things which feed a fire waiting to see if i would burn fare thee well my bright star it was a brief brilliant miracle dive that which i looked up to and i clung to for dear life had to burn itself up just to make itself alive i caught you then in your moment of glory your last dramatic scene against a night sky stage with a memory so clear it's as if you're still before me my once in a lifetime star of an age so fare thee well my bright star last night the tongues of fire circled my around this strange season of pain will come to pass when the heating hands of autumn cool me down
