Every Lively Moment

Sister, how could you fly away?
We called for you every night
And it killed me
How you pulled away
You were gone for so long
We worried every second
But you were lost in the tangles of your mind

And I forgive you, I do
Please forgive me, will you?
I never wanted to doubt you
But you made your move
You were misplaced
You were ignorant
Please, don’t go

Sister, how could I not see the signs?
We searched for you every night
And I read your notes
They were in the most obvious language
But I let you fall
And I want you so bad
Because I’m selfish enough to need you

And I forgive you, I do
Please forgive me, will you?
I never wanted to say good-bye
But you slit your own throat
You left me cold
You left me alone
Please, don’t go

Sister, how could you leave like this?
You had friends
You had me
I loved you so much
I still love you so much
Please, come home

Is the blessing of breath not enough?
You had friends
You had me
I regret every lively moment
You might still be here
If it weren't for me
