I looked in the mirror but something was wrong
I saw you behind but my reflection was gone
There was smoke in the fireplace as white as the snow
A voice beckoned gently, now it’s time to go
A requiem played as you begged for forgiveness
“Don’t touch me”, I screamed
I’ve got unfinished business.
He said to lose my life or lose my love,
That’s the nightmare I’ve been running from.
So let me hold you in my arms a while,
I was always careless as a child.
And there’s a part of me that still believes,
My soul will soar above the trees.
But a desperate fear flows through my blood,
That our dead loves buried beneath the mud.
Let’s grow old together,
And die at the same time.
I said I’ve got no time I have to go,
And I was more right then now I’ll ever know.
He said my heart is faint, will minds regret,
And left him crying next to the chapels steps.
Floating neither up or down,
I wonder when I hit the ground.
Will the earth beneath my body shake,
And cast your sleeping hearts awake.
Could it tremble stars from moonlight skies,
Could it drag a tear from your cold eyes.
I live on the right side, and sleep on the left.
That’s why everything has got to be
