All It Ever Was

from by Jared Cohen

lyrics

i was waiting for you right here at the bottom of the sea
you were waiting for something, anything but me
no one knows how it started but that’s how it’s gonna be
make a flag, waive it overhead for everyone to see
waive it proudly

i was real but you weren’t real
and there’s nothing left of it here
so that’s all it ever was

it all started with a question: what comes at the end
but turns out you’re never gonna know when you begin
raising hands, and i’m asking, looking for a sign
even when it’s written everywhere, shining like a light
shining bright

i was real but you weren’t real
and there’s nothing left of it here
so that’s all it ever was

everything you spent those years waiting for
you turned around but never found the open door
memories and never-were’s all crumbling
sure signs that you must believe that…
