Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Tarnished Love
 




The pathway to forever
where hopes
'n dreams were born
holding close the memory
although...
they're vanished,
gone

Promises 'n kisses
now smudge marks
on my soul
tarnished love
'n heartache...
scars that won't...
grow old

A ballet through my conscience
each footstep takes me back
to once upon a mem'rie
when love...
was strong,
intact

Silhouettes 'n roses
soft music,
candles low
bodies clung together
bathed...
in afterglow

Every little crevice
in the corners
of my mind
hungers...
for the romance
of once upon a time

The man in moon
is frowning
stars no longer shine
salty tears play hopscotch
taste...
like bitter wine

I walk along the pathway
where both of us have been
longing for those moments
to be in love...
again

To days of wine and roses
when passion sang its song
whispers of sweet nothings
snuggled close...
'til dawn

Although sweet words
have silenced
all hopes
'n dreams have died
I've no regrets
for loving you
or bitter tears...
once cried

In the absence
of you...
I'm empty
yet part
of us remains
things went wrong
we drifted
both of us...
to blame

Each thought
of you embraces
still lingers
on my mind
trapped...
in hateful cycle
of once upon a time
