She sees a silouette in the window
She drops her gaze to the bed
Needing to just understand it
Like a hunger needs to be fed
Desperate to pick up the pieces
Of the shattered heart on the floor
Traveling back to her childhood dreams
As she's done so much before

Talking to the people inside her
Like they're sitting around in the room
Saying only to go back to yesterday
When nothing was left to assume
She sails on the plans she was making
Destination unknown
Thinking that she's going to get there
'Cause she's already too far from home

Falling down a well of years
Coming to rest in fears
Dust on the roses, say goodbye
To her dying eyes

I like this a lot. The phrase I like best,

The dust on the roses, say goodbye

Yesterday is history, tomorrow just a mystery. And if today is good to me how could I ask for more?

Very beautiful LB....I really love......

She sails on the plans she was making
Destination unknown
Thinking that she's going to get there
'Cause she's already too far from home.

Btw...thanks for b-day wish
