The departure

I fall
I fall so deep
Even under the scorching sun
Even under the brightest star
I fall into the depth of the abyss

The departure
Has left this house empty
Has left a hole in the heart
The mess gone with it
The noise gone with it
All gone with it

Feeling sick to the stomach
I have to lie to myself
So I would not fall deeper
I need to lie to myself
There is no other way

They did not leave
They just went out for a little while
They will be back eventually

I fall slowly
I fall slower
With this truth in my mind
