You’ll come to understand that
I’ve explored the mountain peaks
Walked through the different valleys
And eaten the strange fruit that
Grew from the sex, love and pain of
So believe me when I say that
I’ll go through hell just to create
Heaven here on earth with you.
I’m not going to force any kind of
Change upon you because I trust
That my love and time will do
All the things that I can’t do alone.
I realize that you’re gone but can
You tell me why I keep seeing
The instant replays of better days
Whenever I close my eyes
I don’t even have to think about you
And your shadow comes to haunt me.
There was this silence between us
That communicated all the things
We just couldn’t express.
But tonight the air was thick with
The smell of you I wanted to call
Your name but had no voice to speak
All I could do is listen and watch
As you expressed yourself to me.
We didn’t make love we created magic
In those short days and nights that we
Spent in between heaven and earth
I knew that happiness doesn’t last always
That’s why I didn’t try to clip your wings.
I wanted to hold on but the need to let go
Was to strong so I released you and cried
Inside as you flew away.
