Out on the Boundary

from Chemistry by Theo Hartman



It would be like telling you goodbye
To see you again
It would be like telling you a lie
You were a good friend
It would be like kissing you goodnight
After the ceremony
It would be like seeing you go by
Out of the limosine

I know I have to carry on
But it's all I can do just to mourn

You leave a mother and a child
You leave a family
You left me wandering and wild
Out on the boundary
I ran with prostitutes and thieves
Avoiding shelter
Living on interstates and dreams
Of when I held her

One I come rolling home
Just to find you gone

It would be like telling you goodbye
To see your face again
Strange like some memory or mind
I had forgotten
It would be like telling you goodbye
To have you see me
Stop and give up everything to lie
Down in your deep field
