A tale of lost love


March of time but I can’t find
So lost inside my mind
Cold chill, a frozen rain
Nothing left to kill the pain
Memories of a distant past
Of a time that love would last
All is lost like melting snow
Now I’m trapped out in the cold

The memory of you and I
Of a love that never dies

Slow clock of ticking time
Only witness to our crimes
There he stood but now no more
Now he’s trapped behind the door
Keep on searching but you won’t see
Only love will hold the key
Fall down on bended knee
Thinking of what used to be

The memory of you and I
Of a love that never dies

But still alive inside
With no reasons left to try
The memories of you and I
But even love…
Even love must die

Never thought you’d say goodbye
Never thought I’d wonder why
Never thought that I could cry
Never thought I’d want to try

Memento mori
Even love…
Even love must die
