JACKIE'S LAMENT

Funny, how it ends like this
Jackie feels like she’s flying; she’s got no wings
Closed eyes, don’t cry, look for the light
Stars they must be beautiful tonight

* All alone, Jackie sings
Game is over, Jackie thinks
Sure is cold this evening
She doesn’t feel a thing

Gently, could it end with ease
Life’s been quiet, why not this
But no, cue thunder, enter rain
Whoever’s up there, spare her pain

* CHORUS

Oh, it’s time for some parting words
Something indelible, maybe like
“All I wanted was all I needed
Now I can’t discern between faith and hope
Goodbye life, Goodbye love
Goodbye all that I’ve ever felt being with you
Goodbye happy, goodbye fear
Goodbye, bye”

* CHORUS
