Legends

Many in my life have come and gone –
But oh so few came on that strong
Years later now – I see these pictures: inside I cry
How is it that you still tear me up inside?
I wish that I could reach in and touch your hair
Just one more time, oh princess fair
To feel that phenomenon they call love
Sweep me away to some paradise above
Now I’m older and wiser with a bleeding heart
And I know I’ll never again play that part
Oh I was such a fool – and you were a liar
Our passion was such a furious fire
Ignorant, innocent, deceptive – a lethal mix
Like a drug, so addictive – just one more fix
Sinners and saints thrown into one
Trying to make it out but we got so done
Years on, we kick ourselves
Put these feelings on the shelf
We’ve done endured for so long
All these things we done wrong
But tonight I’ll remember us as legends
Like our story has no end
As the queen and king we were
Before the wind turned
