I did everything to forget
Chased the sun until it set
Swam across the oceans
It did not quell my emotions

My tears fell till they dried
As my heart ached till it died
Nothing took me away from you
No matter what I did I was blue

Every breath I take in my chest aches
Memories of all the pain and mistakes
I left everything and walked your path
Now I can’t clear the mess of the aftermath

I want to be good and feel kind again
Love was never supposed to be a sin
But you left me only a destroyed heart
I’m too old for the razor and body art

A million sunrises will not erase
My memory of your beautiful face
Time in its entirety won’t move me
From the greatest love that wasn’t to be
