the first time i met you
i swore that i could leave you
whenever i tried
i swore that this meant nothing at all at best
you were a dying flame
the second time we kissed oh i was shattered
left in a confused heap on the floor
lord, help me i was wounded
you led me astray and then brought me back home
i know i was lonely but
it was never why i stayed
looking back i shake my head
in utter confusion
two years later i’m still here
and you, my only one
and you, my only one
i wake up each morning early with you asleep
and stumble around the bed
i try not to wake you while making my coffee
i smile as i trip on your dress
and love this is so mundane
but lord, it makes me weak
later in life as i cry by your bedside
holding your hand while your sun slowly sets
i remember the life we led oh through the darkness
fumbling around like inept innocents
and though you may leave me now
i cannot help but think
though this life is short and sad
and ever creeping by
as long as i’m in love with you
you cannot ever die
you cannot ever die...
