about

Summertime Power-Pop anthem.

lyrics

It is what it was
Beautiful and lucky
It is what it was
Inevitable like a tragedy
It was what it is
Sad and lucky
It was what it is
Beautiful tragedy

Just becuase the petals fall
Don't mean the colors never grew
There is no distance between you and me
No time to keep on moving through
we've chrystallized the light
but it can still warm us in memory
No drop in sight
No cause to claim
Had to leave so together we could remain


It is what it was
Beautiful and lucky
It is what it was
Inevitable like a tragedy
It was what it is
Sad and lucky
It was what it is
Beautiful tragedy

Creation has it's own life if you'll let it
Maybe it's time to burn your chest with the ashes
So rode and restless
That you find yourself claiming what is yours to be
Something I could never have if it wasn't taken away from me

It is what it was
Beautiful and lucky
It is what it was
Inevitable like a tragedy
It was what it is
Sad and lucky
It was what it is
Beautiful tragedy

Keep in mind the road you walk ain't for you to walk alone
There are centuries of souls with your experience as their own
We're here to touch thelives of those still fighting in the fray
Even with your flaws you show them all
Life starts new every day

It is what it was
Beautiful and lucky
It is what it was
Inevitable like a tragedy
It was what it is
Sad and lucky
It was what it is
Beautiful tragedy
It is what it is
Beautiful tragedy
