we steal a ride

on that morning that i left for school
my day reached out into the world
i came home to find that you had gone
a door had closed and so had i

i dream of shadows and to hear your voice
unfinished stories that you might have told
you gave a smile to me that now i've lost
left with my hopes inside a tear

the wheel rolls on we steal a ride
i carry all i need inside

the time we spent together is now a ghost
i drink to you just once a year
i never look beyond my setting sun
though yours is gone i feel it still

i shuffle on and try and find my way
carry your mark and pass it on
this pains a love that i need to feel
and time a balm to ease and heal
