lyrics

The wings bend, the wheels raise.
My eyes close, my mind fades.
There's nothing to let go of
with the clouds below and the sky above.

I never wanted you to know. I never wanted you to let go.

Dear Brooklyne,
Why'd you have to be named after such a famous borough? I've traveled the world, and I've seen your name everywhere I go.
Please remember me with more than just sadness. I've traveled the world, and I've seen that it's not that bad.

I held the pamphlet in my hand. I had hoped the Word of God would help me understand you better. I helped you hang your new curtains. I had hoped the hurt would pass when you see how good we can be together.

I never wanted you to know. I never wanted you to let go, but you let go.

Dear Brooklyne,
Why'd you have to be named after such a famous borough? I travel the world, and I see your name everywhere I go.
Please remember me with more than just sadness. I've traveled the world, and I've seen..

It's not that bad to be in Love with each other. I know you're mad to think we wasted so much time together. I guess I'm glad you think you're so much better without me.

but I never wanted you to know. I never wanted you to let go.

Dear Brooklyne,
Why'd you have to be named after such a famous borough? I've traveled the world, and I've seen it's not that bad. It's not that bad.
