I can remember now
My eyes are opening
For the first time in my life
My eyes are opening!
You're punching holes
Fit a parade into
Where you stand
And you ask me to race with you
But I believed everything you said to me
Were you lying when you told me
You'd be showing up in my dream?
Is it a good time now?
A new voice comes answering
I let you get your breath
Before we forget what's happening!
We're saying so long
We're waving goodbye
Some day we'll lok back and roll our eyes
See them taking a swing
And knocking the smiles off of their own faces
But all of this discussion
Why all this discussion?
I'm going some place I have never been before
I wish you'd just stop talking
Do it for 'em one more time
Do it for 'em one more time, boys
Let's take 'em back to wehre we came from
Before we say GOODBYE.
You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.
Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big. Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
