January second, the beginning of this year
And your departure would cut short our celebration cheer
I can't believe now that I let you go with just a hug goodbye
I think I caught a tiny glimmer of fear flash through your eyes

And when I was a little kid, I told my dad one night
I said I'd like to be a cartographer as he turned out the light
He looked me over pensively and asked me, "Why that route?"
And now I know it's so that no-one else has gotta map you out

It seems we're growing apart but this time you can blame it on the continental drift
You look at the charts, you look at the graphs, you can see there's an ever-increasing shift
We're growing faster apart and I never should have left you there, alone and far away
I hope I see you again, I'm coming after you; if I'm not eaten by sharks, we'll meet again someday
