– somebody’s saying so long –

Do you get that feeling, that
awful, anxious feeling, that
you’re about to lose some-
one? You
pause your intuition, your
pesky premonition, and
you may even try to
run. Right

now, I feel quite disconnected
to my brethren, and
I know some good men that feel quite
close to heaven. I
try to ignore these signs,
won’t read between these lines,
’cause I’m not quite steady ready
to say goodbye.

So, if you need to go…
if you need to leave,
here’s what you need to know…
what you’ve given me, a
friend in the end, a
comforter, a carrier, a
lesson from back when, a
breakthrough for a barrier.
So, if you need to go…
if you need to run…
here’s what you need to know…
for me what you’ve done –
gave meaning to my words,
reason for my season.
That is what you need to know,
if you’re leaving.
