twenty four years 
shadows, ghosts, and spirits
came, stayed, and left
pure love can come and go
as quickly as the tides
as softly as the breeze
but, you were there with me
and so was he and so was she
we're all just here
echoing in the panic 
but, just relax
it's all here

twenty four years
tangled, twisted, and shifted
memories built on choices
memories built on time
memories built on mind
hair long, skin same
I forget sometimes,
to brush my teeth.
I forget sometimes,
not to kill the magic.
I forget sometimes,
I'm always alone/
I'm never alone.

twenty four years

I am going to keep shining
