Today's the last day
Will I ever see you again?
Right now there's no light I can see
I know it's not long
You'll only be gone for a year or so
But it seems so much longer to me

Never before have I so
Looked forward to another summer

If one listens closely
To my voice, my soul, my mind
One can hear the sound of the orchestra playing
The beat of my footsteps
The melody on the wind -
We've been separated
You're gone
Yet if one listens closely
The music's still in my heart

Of course there were times
When I wished I'd never come back to you
But that was when I was naive
Now that you've left
I don't have much to look forward to
But always to next time we meet

Never before have I so
Looked forward to another summer

If one listens closely
To my voice, my soul, my mind
One can hear the sound of the orchestra playing
The beat of my footsteps
The melody on the wind -
We've been separated
You're gone
Yet if one listens closely
The music's still in my heart

In the cold
In the rain
No matter what
We'd always go on
In the heat
And through the pain
I'm stronger now
Because you never gave up

Shh
Can you hear it?

If one listens closely
To my voice, my soul, my mind
One can hear the sound of the orchestra playing
The beat of my footsteps
The melody on the wind -
We've been separated
You're gone
Yet if one listens closely
The music's still in my heart

Listen closely
To my voice, my soul, my mind
And hear the sound of the orchestra playing
The beat of my footsteps
The melody on the wind -
We've been separated
But there's always next time
Listen closely
The music's still in my heart

A nice love song, don't you think?

WRONG

I actually wrote this because of and for marching band, believe it or not.
But really, believe it.
Because I'm really that much of a band geek.
