I'll stay alone. I'll keep waiting for her. She'll remember my embrace. She'll remember my words. We were a statue cast in bronze, resurfaced beauty in a dead art. In those days when I had my heart, and the nights that I knew love. I only closed my eyes for a second and she was gone, as if the wind had swept her from my arms. She hid a map in her smile and a compass in letters never sent. We made peace with the setting sun, embraced the night that surrounded us. And when the rain came I pulled her in two hearts had become one. But I knew I could never keep her warm so she swam through an ocean of my tears and found love on other shores. She always held the stars. She would place a call at arrival... but no ring ever woke me.
You were the November gold clinging to the trees. Now December makes it's way lifeless and heavy, you took with you the warmth of the spring. I'll stay in the cold, I'll always keep to the shadows. I'm exhausted, I'm worn thin from chasing what we could have been. I'll keep this broken heart folded in the letters that you returned. And I'll remember every night that our bodies and our bones intertwined. "My Dearest, Every night I put a mirror by my side so I don't wake up alone. The sun breaks to the window sill, and for a moment I think you're there but its just the reflection of someone who has lost the only thing that gave him strength. My mind wanders; Where are you and who makes you laugh? And if its any solace to myself I'll say you're in good hands; just not mine. But I can still hold your heart because it still beats in mine, and I can still breathe your air because, well, you still give me life. But there's no one to call in the middle of the night, there's no more light in my eyes. With love, __________________ P.S. : I hope you remember..."
My head hangs With disappointment at arm's length. That feeling of losing your breath. So I watched from afar, As the knots slowly unwound, I felt my smile fade forever. We were once the sun Breaking the horizon, How our light reaches the stars And they succumb. But times got hard. We pushed and we lost. We didn't know much about giving up Until we gave up on us. Then you were finally swept away, With my heart. I watched the contrails of our love fade Before I heard the news, That it went down in the sea. And I will cherish the memories. And I will place these flowers so gently.
