You promised the world, and all the beauty it holds. You promised your heart, and all you’ve ever known You tossed aside, you got on the ride Unknowingly, knowingly, ready to explore a love You’ve never been shown. You took his hand, and lead him to a castle, You kept him warm for a little while. He looked with disbelief as a glance over your shoulder Removed any recollection of grief His dog-eared heart had ever felt. I’ve known him now around eighteen years And the magic he found in you removed my fear That he had forgotten how to love, Forgotten what it felt like to hear The music life plays. I fear his ticket is soon to expire, So please keep his heart on fire. Keep him close and safe from harm, Keep on riding for a little while longer And shelter him from any storm. I know you’ve loved and lost the same as him And a new life is scary to begin from scratch, But his heart of stone has begun to crack And heal with your name engraved there, So please, for me, love him the way he deserves.
