We sat under a tree
Older than the buildings, older than our souls
And I laughed at all your jokes,
In your stories I got lost.
I wish you could’ve told me
That soon you’d had to go
But I should’ve known,
You also had dreams of your own.
Dreams you have to chase,
Dreams as big as the old tree
That stands tall with such grace
And like its roots clinging to the ground,
Your dreams are clinging to your heart,
Oh but how I wish we could buy a little more time
So please don’t you ever forget
That I fell for you in heartbeat and yet
I’m telling you: get ready, get set
I’m not chasing you because I’m on my own way
I have dreams, I have to sacrifice too.
And before you go, I want you to know
You were happiness, you were joy
You broke my heart, but not like those guys did before
You broke it, but only because you have to go.
A thousand stars had to align
For us to meet, for us to collide
And it was a pleasure for me to find,
To find you in this crowded life.
So thank you for the smiles,
Now, go live and please come back
With more stories to tell, until we lose track
And if the old tree still stands in that same spot
Maybe we can sit there and why not?
I’ll let you crack another joke as the sun goes down
And I’ll fall again in the blink of an eye
Oh, I can only dream of you
Making me laugh one last time.
