There doesn't seem to be a castle outside my window anymore

There doesn't seem to be a dark storm

I don't know the last time I truly fought

I don't know when I truly died

And so, right now, I'm unsure if I'm alive

 

Now I know it's just silly

And I have to just live

But sometimes I’m haunted by a foolish little kid

Who had been to the ends of time and saw my whole life

But never understood the older me, and so never thought to fight

 

His light is burning out and he doesn't even know

Maybe I should tell him, but I'm afraid that he might go

And leave me here alone, as he continues on

Off to worlds unknown
