lyrics

Into that good night I go forth to find you
Are you still waiting for me in there?
Here I come…
Where are you? Are you here with me still?

And in the summer of my life
I found a reason there
Another heart entwined with mine
Something real was shared
And you were everything unto me
Nothing else compared
The very meaning of this life enshrined

When we were together
Nothing was untrue, including the allure
And we boldly faced the Never

Oh, but please don’t cry, nothing is forever
You can try, but nothing ever lasts
We can despise a lack of devotion
You can trap it deep inside, but everything must die

Last look into your eyes
A cold black sightless gaze
A love lost so profound
A warm heart cooling down
I can still feel you

We were as one
Everything has come undone
You were the whole of my life
Reunited into one loving being
My one reason to be - removed
I descend into this solitary ruin

So please don’t try, and filch this absolution
For you and I can never be again
I can not abide by love-loss insurrection
Now I realize that everything must die

When I found you, I found myself
Then I lost you, and I lost myself
I lost my way, I lost my aim
And now alone, I cast off this shell

This pathetic mortal coil is not what I am anymore
Here I come
The forced evacuation of Heaven could not keep me from returning for you
I am here…
