Wordy Wednesday: Tick, Tick, Tick

Tomorrow I leave for Chicago for Ch1Con. I’ll be both going to the airport and flying by myself for the first time ever, and I’ve never been to either the airport I’m flying from nor the one I’m flying to. (Basically, I’m feeling very adult-y right now. Also, based on how many times I managed to get lost today going to places I’ve been to a billion times, like there’s a good chance I’m going to find a way to mess this up.)

Before then though, we’ve got a Wordy Wednesday. This week’s post is a song I wrote a few years ago.

**********

[Capo 5 – G, C, Em, C]
VERSE1
I remember the way you’d look at me
The way you inspired silence,
that rang of eternity

I remember snowball fights
and the rain that fell, endlessly
and you always danced

You were wild and you were calm
You were safe, your hugs were warm
You were everything I wanted to be
I craved that smile that said, you were proud of me

CHORUS [Em, C, G, C]
Tick, tick, tick…
Tick, tick, tick…
Tick, tick, tick…

VERSE2
You were the feel of running
into the sunset
Believed happily ever after
was just the beginning

You were the sound of music
Birds chirping in the dawn
And they haven’t sung once
since you’ve been gone

[Repeat CHORUS]

BRIDGE [Em, C, G, C]
And I don’t know
what to do without you here
The days, the months, the years
just disappear

All at once,
I’m young, and old, and in between
Without you here,
My life’s just a memory

[Repeat CHORUS x2]
[Repeat BRIDGE]
[Repeat CHORUS]

ENDING
And I don’t know
what to do without you here
The days, the months, the years
just disappear

**********

Thanks for reading!
