light years
pearl jam
I've used hammers made out of wood.
I have played games with pieces and rules.
I undeciphered tricks at the bar, but now you're gone.
I haven't figured out why.
I've come up with riddles and jokes about war.
I figured out numbers and what they're for.
I've understood feelings and I've understood words
But how could you be taken away?

And wherever you've gone and wherever we might go.
It don't seem fair. Today just disappeared.
Your light's reflected now. Reflected from afar.
We were but stones. Your light made us stars.

With heavy breath, awakened regrets.
Back pages and days alone that could have been
spent together but we were miles apart.
Every inch between us becomes light years now.
No time to be void or save up on life.
Oh, you got to spend it all.

And wherever you've gone and wherever we might go.
It don't seem fair. You seem to like it here.
Your light's reflected now. Reflected from afar.
We were but stones. Your light made us stars.

And wherever you've gone and wherever we might go.
It don't seem fair. Today just disappeared.
Your light's reflected now. Reflected from afar.
We were but stones. Your light made us stars.
