Atlas I look back on my love
My heart is seized with pain
I wish love brought me good things
Heartache is all I’ve gained

I yearn for a tomorrow
Like once upon a time
But sight of love eludes me
Love gained was never mine

Was searching my fatal mistake
They say that love works best
When pursuit of the finer things
Does not include caress

Maybe you could not see in me
Someone worthy of your heart
And like the tide kisses the sand
Your touch chose to depart

Atlas I look back on my love
You made my heart so desolate
I fear love may no longer grow
Perhaps us was just not of fate

The truth is we may never be
And I’m ok with that somehow
Because you chose to set me free
To find the one I need right now
