Fare Thee Well

Fare thee well my bright star
 I watched your taillights blaze into nothingness
 But you were long gone before I ever got to you
 Before you blazed past this address
And now I think of having loved and having lost
 You never know what it's like to never love
 Who can say what's better and my heart's become the cost?
 A mere token of a brighter jewel sent from above
Fare thee well my bright star
 The vanity of youth the color of your eyes
 And maybe if I'd fanned the blazing fire of your day-to-day
 Or if I'd been older I'd been wise
But too thick the heat of those long summer evenings
 For a cool evening I began to yearn
 But you could only feed upon the things which feed a fire
 Waiting to see if I would burn
Fare thee well my bright star
 It was a brief brilliant miracle dive
 That which I looked up to and I clung to for dear life
 Had to burn itself up just to make itself alive
And I caught you then in your moment of glory
 Your last dramatic scene against a night sky stage
 With a memory so clear that it's as if you're still before me
 My once in a lifetime star of an age
So fare thee well my bright star
 Last night the tongues of fire circled me around
 And this strange season of pain will come to pass
 When the healing hands of autumn cool me down
