Pop Song

everything changes
I just don't catch on
everything changes
I can't touch it

where did you go?  you waved
and turned the corner
left me standing in my square

so many not here, I've
lost count, the silence
overwhelms me and I dare
not breathe too loud

I saw you there once, in the
garden of my summer, and
all was good, it felt good
still fresh and new, things to do

now I pull-in, I wind-in
it's all gone and
nothing seems left to do
thin and cold, older life

tires me so - where did you go?
everything changes and I
just didn't catch on
I didn't touch it
