I had not remembered; I had not dared,
Those passing glances, that had me ensnared.
She was my woman; I was her man,
Someone to guide me; when the heart ache began.
The world was our oyster; your lips were my rum,
Our love made us lay there; under the sun.
The day I first saw you; to the day we first spoke,
Those precious treasures; have gone up in smoke.
I try and forget you; forget our favorite song,
My days get so lonely; and god they're so long.
I must not surrender; I must soldier on,
Cause loving you baby, can never be wrong.
My life was in shambles, When you went away,
I can still hear you; when there's nothing to say.
Your soothing fragrance; still hangs in the air,
One whiff sends me plunging; back into despair.
It may not be sorrow; its not joy that's for sure,
My days may be numbered, but my love is still pure.
And from the ashes; you'll find what remains,
The hope that you'll one day, break free of your chains.
Cause babe I still love you, don't get me wrong,
I'm just so tired, been waiting too long.
Don't cry now my darling; just wipe off those tears,
Just try and you'll conquer; all your worst fears.
Thought you had forgotten; thought you had not cared,
Thought it had meant nothing; this love that we shared.
And so my sweet baby; my only true friend,
We must part ways now, must try to pretend.
And just go on living, this life that's not whole,
Without you beside me, ain't got no more soul.
But if in eons; our paths were to meet,
Would we just be strangers; who don't even speak ?
If that were to happen; please don't think me ill,
For I'll be here waiting; loving you still.
