maybe we did move too fast
maybe we weren’t meant to last
maybe you’ll just choose to pass
this off as an accident

it’s a mistake
one we all make
one we were meant to break

like a firework across the sky
one bright spark and then we die
fast like the wind, soft like a sigh
give me time to say goodbye

it’s a mistake
one others will make
one others will break

like a candle flame between your fingers
hot to the touch but does not linger
the heat will make the world seem greener
but will not last all through the winter

it’s a mistake
one that will break
our hearts
one that won’t slake
our spirits
the kind that will take
our dreams
