You thought I cried for you when my eyes closed from the tears
And laughing you found someone new- I could never keep you here.
But in reality- I thought that you should know
those tears I cried were meant for me- I cry them all alone
For I knew in my heart somehow that you would never stay
but still I fooled myself to think that I could find a way
But in that laughing moment as I watched you walk away
Those tears were o’er my folly letting you my heart invade.
I saw you when you stood alone
And asked you once to dance
You smiled at me when you said
Maybe there was a chance
But then time reared it’s ugly head
And turned your heart to stone
And once again I find myself
Dancing on my own.
Will you ask her to forgive me
For all the hurt and pain
And that no matter how it seems
I’ll love her all the same.
Falling shadows, passing time
remembering when you and I
had hoped and wished for something more
than broken hearts we’d had before.
But wise sages could not foretell
our paths would wind unparalleled
we’d live our lives two souls apart
traversing seas without a chart.
Caught up in storms and cast to shore
losing the hope of love we’d born.
Now falling shadows, passing time
are all that’s left of you and I
