lyrics

Parenting parents,
Through quickening days of diminishing light,
Into the end game,
Still hoping to mate with two pawns and a knight.
Can it be, is it true—
You are me, I am you?
Once and for all, as dominoes fall.

How does it happen?
We think when we grow up our childhood ends.
Then we learn better,
But it may be too late to make our amends.
Can it be, is it true—
What are we going to do
For them now with what they allow?

Once it was summer,
And everything seemed to get by on its own.
Then comes a season
We weather together, but finish alone.

Can it be, is it true—
You are me …
Look to the glass to see what shall pass.
