Fare Thee Well - Emily Saliers
    Fare thee well my bright star

    I watched your tailights blaze into nothingness
    But you were long gone before I ever got to you
    Before you blazed past this address

    And now I think of having loved and having lost
    But never know what it feel like to never love
    Who can say what's better when my heart's become the cost
    A mere token of a brighter jewel sent from above

    Fare thee well my bright star
    The vanity of youth the color of your eyes
    And maybe if I'd fanned the blazing fire of your day-to-day
    Or if I'd been older, I'd been wise

    Too thick the heat of those long summer evenings
    For a cool evening I began to yearn
    But you could only feed upon the things which feed a fire
    Waiting to see if I would burn

    Fare thee well my bright star
    It was a brief brilliant miracle dive
    That which I looked up to and I clung o for dear life
    Had to burn itself up just to make itself alive

    And I caught you then in your moment of glory
    Your last dramatic scene against a night sky stage
    With a moment so clear that it's as if you're still before me
    My once in a lifetime star of an age

    Fare thee well my bright star
    Last night the tongues of fire circled me round
    And this strange season of pain will come to pass
    When the healing hands of autumn cool me down
