I sat across the table staring into silence
So much is said, without spoken words
Wrap in the arms of loneliness
While your presence is so near
Who have we become?
How did we become the monsters within?
While seeking only love,
I hurt you and you hurt me
Tic toc, where have time go?
All the moments we’ve lost
While searching for new ones
Those moments that never came
The leaves are changing again
Another season has come and gone
Shattered dreams, forgotten promises
We fail love, We fought the wrong war.
