You are a whole world, all at once.

Time speeds as I get close,
Closer to the end of this
Moments freeze in my mind,
Like snow settling for a lifetime
Is this unreal
Is this too real
I might just not know,
But what I know remains here, even when you go.

You are a whole world, all at once.
You are a whole world, all at once.

Someday when you are gone,
Sipping beverages,
I’ll smile about the way you smile.
Or just close my eyes
To keep the tears inside
They’ll call me a lover
They’ll call me a loser
I might just not know.
But what I know remains here, even when you go.

You are a whole world, all at once
You are a whole world, all at once.

And when this becomes a history
A little too deep
A lot more secretly
I’ll know,
I have lived a lifetime, in
A chance.

You are a whole world, all at once
You are a whole world, all at once
