You have cold eyes
In my dreams you have cold eyes
Where once warmth burst out.
Your icy voice
Its echoing around me
Crescendo-ing into a shout
Tears that never stop falling
Memories that never stop calling
Can I go on?
Can I make it?
They said it would fade in time
Said I would forget
Were they lying?
Did they mistake it?
I know we said goodbyes,
Burnt bridges and let go
I know we said our sorry’s
And managed smiles before we turned away
So why am I still here?
On the crossroads where we first broke apart
Why cant I move past those seconds
Those seconds that ripped us apart that day
I’ve walked too many roads
Thinking how they might have ended
How things might have been good
So that now the memories would make me smile
But all I can do in the present
Is wonder about the pain
Will it take a few hours to die down?
Or will it take a longer while
I say I’m ok and laugh it off
Mingle in the people walking up and down streets
But I’m really hearing your icy voice
And seeing your cold eyes
And I’m waiting for the pain to fade
The memories to finally leave me
I’m waiting for all the nightmares to the end
As the sun finally begins to rise.
