The Story So Far

All you have is a memory
Sad, painful and old
I’ve got something better
A story yet to be told ..

Memories buried so deep
In your broken heart, of
Long forgotten railroads
Random footprints on sand
Some old Horatian odes
A love, cursed, goddamned ..

All you have is that love
Or what’s left of it
I’ve got something better
A story nearly complete

Memories wiped away
By your lonely tears, of
An open window, a closed door
A wall five feet high
A place you called home
But felt like a golden cage

All you ever wanted was to fly
Out into the open blue skies
All I could do was to let you see
The world outside through my eyes

So this is the story so far,
I found you broken and hurt in love
Held your hand and lifted you up
Said I can heal you, ease your pain
But you just wanted to fly again
And I’m now walking away from you,
In to the cold and lonesome rain

Will you ever let those memories go ?
I don’t know but I hope you do
Hope you write your own story
And there’s a place in that for me

All I have now is a hope
Fading, slim and cold
You’ve got something better
A story yet to be told…
