Lyrics – When You Go

WHEN YOU GO

words and music: Jonathan Coulton

VERSE 1:
Only a moment ago we had nothing but time
Everything lasted forever and you were all mine
Only a dream I know
Thinking you’d never go
Tearing off pieces of myself
Just for the time it buys me

CHORUS:
Fold my heart up small
Or break it into pieces
Find somewhere and keep it there
Take it when you go

VERSE 2:
There in the frame of your face in the cast of your eyes
I saw this coming but still I am caught by surprise
All of this time I knew
That I’d be losing you
That doesn’t mean that it’s OK
That doesn’t mean I’m ready

REPEAT CHORUS

Some things we always remember, some things we forget
No way to make it up now no room for regret
That’s no good for anyone
And so I come undone
Now I am less than what I was
Whatever’s left is yours now

REPEAT CHORUS
