H​.​E. (useless chase)

from Ucow by Stead



So you give up, now you say thanks, goodbye, good luck …
You seem to be as proud as you were
when you could really start anytime
from nothing once again

and you will find that every move you made is a treasure
a little work of art
you will see how every step you took was so precious
at least for one of us

And so we give up, It's not that we have lost, Shut up!
or just that it was clear
you could not really be part of a thing that is not
what you think it should be

but you will see how every move you made is a treasure
a little piece of life
you will find how every step you took was so graceful
and it took you to the end

cause all that is real
as love it springs up
to then withers away
and the beauty it shares
as long as it's kind
that's all remains beyond
