We are stepping toward the ledge
And threatening to jump off
Letting the whole world
Friends and family watch

We are coming to our senses
And gulping down our fears
While our mothers, sisters, brothers
Burst into tears

We are running toward the future
Reticence be damned
I look again at the place
Where you stand

You didn’t want to come here
But to here is where we took
Now everyone is getting one last look

At the two of us together
Suspended in the sky
Walking the fatal tightrope
As our love must slowly die

Not leaping without looking
I step toward the side
Utterly pragmatic
I start my solemn dive

My mother looks up at me
Wonder in her eyes
It’s our day in the sky

As I billow down slowly
In a graceful arc
I wait for the inevitable
Concussion to start

You look at me too
You seem to be floating away
Your expression is hard to discern
And my hair is in the way
It’s our day in the sky

It’s our day in the sky
It’s our day in the sky
I don’t see you anymore
I have fallen faster than you
Even though that’s physically impossible
Well if you factor in the air
I guess anything is

Why don’t you come on closer
Why don’t you hear me knocking
You don’t see me
You don’t see me
