In times long gone

I lost all hope and I made a spell I threw your love in a wishing well In times long gone I watched it sink as I called your name I held my breath but you never came In times long gone In times long gone In times long gone when your love was born A word was wrong on a page half-torn In times long gone on a sweeping wave I brought your love to my secret cave I held it close and I watched it bleed Your wounded love that you didn’t need In times long gone It stood no chance but it was so brave Your drowning love that you didn’t save In times long gone In times long gone In times long gone when your love was born A word was wrong on a page half-torn In times long gone on a sweeping wave I brought your love to my secret cave A sacred rock had a missing rune A silent wolf heard a howling moon I sat all night by a fragile flame I kept it warm but you never came you never came And there it was, just a coin to toss Your broken love that became my cross In times long gone And there I was, out of magic tricks Without your love that I couldn’t fix In times long gone In times long gone In times long gone when your love was born A word was wrong on a page half-torn In times long gone on a sweeping wave I brought your love to my secret cave In times long gone In times long gone In times long gone In times long gone

In my books there are gardens of heartbreak and loss Where I walk under bridges covered in moss I would read them to you but I can’t find the words To explain what they mean, the books in my world In my streets you will find no footprints or signs You can wander for miles, not a soul in sight I would show you the way but I can’t find the words To explain where they lead, the streets in my world Out of my reach, like scared little birds Flying away from my strange little world Got to let them escape, got to leave them unheard My beautiful fugitive words In my dreams I’m adrift on a slow, slow tide I’m alone with the wind and the silence of time I would tell you the truth but I can’t find the words To explain why I feel so alone in my world Out of my reach, like scared little birds Flying away from my strange little world Got to let them escape, got to leave them unheard My beautiful fugitive words
