—for Rihanna and Centino Kemp
Generations are fading, fading
right before our eyes
All the old sorrows and regrets
they be fading, fading away
Isn’t that how it’s always been
they finally just fade away
They can’t help being that way but
now they’re just fading, fading away
Isn’t that how we’ve always been
Fading, fading away from them?
All of us ending up being this way
Fading, fading from who we were?
