The Fire in My Life

You were the fire in my life when I was invisible and now you’re the tears in my eyes
I won’t cry about it again anymore, but just this one last time…
You were close enough to see the darkness inside
I exposed my heart and let you see all that I hide
I’ve dug my grave several times in the messes I’ve made, but you were there to take my hand, pull me out and give me fresh air to breathe
You were a saint made of gold and you let me ride on your wings
I opened my book and you read all its pages
You helped me cross out the names that didn’t belong, but you were the one who broke my heart
Now you’re the reason why it’s torn into uneven pieces
You turned your back for no reason at all so it’s all that I can do to pretend to remain unaffected by this whirlwind
I’m not mad, but this pain is a beast
Nothing’s as it seems
We were lost in a forbidden land, holding hands, it was magic
It was gone like a daydream, but I still remember your name
I’ll hold my peace, but I’m not one to forget
I don’t believe in erasing memories forever
I’ll hold our dreams in my arms for the last time before they shatter
You weren’t the same love, no, you were a deeper wine
You were the one I’d been waiting for my whole life
You were the fire in my life when I was invisible and now you’re the tears in my eyes
I won’t cry about it again anymore, but just this one last time…
