Chad, it is felicity


Deathbed Marriage

These lyrics are not based on an individual, although I know someone who might feel they are. They work on different levels.
On one level, the lyric decribes the adult myopia which leads to self destructive behaviour, recalling the ideal of youth.
The lyric was constructed using a former friend as a motif. Anyone who knows Chad might not mistake Chad for the lyric, but for those he tells. Anyone who doesn't know Chad will view the lyric as it is intended.

You remember when we met?
The games you used to play.
The love you mourned you lost.
The dream we wanted to share
But yours were yours
And mine was mine
Chad, this is felicity.

You remember taking my heart?
The games you used to play.
The others were merely friends.
My dream you promised to be a part.
But yours were yours
And mine was mine
Chad, this is felicity.

You remember our union?
The boat, the promise, the game.
The children for which you yearned.
A dream of love we shared
But yours were yours
And mine was mine
Chad, this is felicity.

You remember our dream?
The games we used to play.
Children, friends, mourned as lost.
Those dreams of love we had.
But yours were yours
And mine was mine
Chad, this is felicity.

Stop drinking Chad.
This is felicity.
Stop dreaming Chad.
This is felicity.
Stop yearning for that dream.
Chad, this is felicity.
