When goodnight meant goodbye, this is how you love them when you've lost them
"It's the only color I call home, because where the flora is green, life will always be seen." By K.A.S.
The storm ebbs,
Always at the very edge,
Teetering off the very ledge.
The storm flows,
But it just never moves,
It just never goes.
I remember when your words dressed me so proudly.
I remember when your eyes said love so loudly.
But I guess I was right,
Because every sunshine day ends in a cold dead night.
You never knew what I meant
When I swore every breath of yours was heaven sent.
But I guess I was always wrong,
Because we just sat in silence,
Forgetting all our words,
And forgetting all our songs.
But I still love you from the highest sight,
I still love you to the dimmest light.
I still love you every day,
I still love you every night.
But if a time should come
Where our future is unclear,
Know that I love you always,
I'll always be waiting right here.
You might think
That maybe I didn't feel when our ship began to sink.
I think you didn't notice
The break in my heart,
And in all my other parts.
Because you turned away
When I started to decay.
I don't know if you'll ever tell me
Where we were led astray,
But I know, now,
Nothing green can stay.
Yeah. Nothing green can stay.
