Tory Cottingham – A Fond Farewell Before You Go lyrics

You're taking your first step like it's the last one
That you will ever have;
You're counting the stars up late 'til midnight –
You wonder where they go.
If only I could write a letter in pictures just this time,
I'd say 'Sweetie, don't you cry now, '
And wipe your tears away.

I wish I could take your nightmares,
And make them disappear.
I hope your curiosity and trust never go to waste.
If a big black cloud comes down to scare you
And take away your dreams,
I just can't let that happen to you.

I know that everything burns beautifully now.
You'll see that the lights in life can only shine for you.
I saw a face in the clouds last night,
And I thought of you.

Morning comes, but I still haven't slept,
Thinking about what I've done.
And how a little life can be affected by every single word.
I hope one day you will remember me and smile,
And I'll come back to life through you.
