Falling into the twilight, Orion rising in the purple glow
Defying gravity for a moment to escape the shadows
You walk blindly into the night
And I, I unwillingly walk towards the only remaining light
——— ———- ———-
Strange you never knew how much you inspire me
How much I want to be like you, to walk on your path
Strange to see it walking away after all this time
These two paths diverging, you to yours and I to mine
I can still feel you here, shadow beside me to listen, hear and confide in
I can still see you there, shadow growing longer, dimmer and stronger
Strange you never knew
Another sleepless night where my waking dreams color the shadows
So much moves in the corners, all of it becoming what you are, fading into you
I think it’s strange you never knew.
Hold my hand this one last time as I walk into the warming sunshine
Let me kiss you goodbye as the tapestry continues to unwind
We wrote our story, our family, our lives, so much in that fabric
Torn and tattered and blowing in the wind of tomorrow
You’re the one that I loved. The one that I felt by my side when I reached out and needed someone to hold
You’re the one that I let down so many times, when you reached out and I wasn’t there
So much time wasted, why are we wasting more still? Walking in place without actually going anywhere
The past, those were my mistakes that I caused or allowed to happen.
The present is yours now. I am ready, even if there are too many people in front of your eyes to see.
Another sleepless night to ponder the mistakes of yesterday, and see the mistakes of today and tomorrow
Strange you never knew. How tonight they fade into you.
