You said goodbye, and I knew it was the end.
I watched you go down the road and turn around the bend.
In the streetlight your shadow echoed down the lane,
Now shadows and echoes, are all that remain.
Though there’s been many others, they broke like glass against you,
In my heart you know I have always stayed true.
No matter how much it hurts, it will stay with me ‘til the end.
And if I could I’d do it all over again.
The music you spoke fell on me like rain,
As a parched man I soaked up every refrain.
And danced to a tune I had known once before,
And a tune that at last I knew once more.
Then softly, slowly, surely, the darkness crept across my eyes,
The light ‘twas once so bright now seemed hidden in disguise.
Now I’m left with nothing but the days I knew you then,
And if I could, I would do it, all over again.
As a new spring flower, you sprung into my life,
A brilliant radiance shining out from all the white.
A welcome sight, if only I’d knew back then,
After summer, comes fall, then winter must come again.
And so I’m alone, ever-gray in my heart,
What had been made whole, once again came apart.
Some bonds are so strong, once broken, they cannot mend,
But I would do it all over again.
