The past escape

When silence fills the air, with no one around and time to spare
I escape to the memory of an old life
The love that made everything worth the fight 
My eyes are closed, And this reality slips away 
I hear your voice as if it was still that day 
A love that can't be
But the world didn't matter when it was just you and me 
This even for moments is my reality 
The one time we were both free 
In the darkness where prying eyes could never see 
You still could find me 
Words where never spoken that could explain our love 
Yet, our eyes betrayed us all the time 
Every second was spent like our last 
Knowing that soon these times would be locked in the past 
As we touched, our darken souls merged 
No matter how hard we fought, it was felt as we must
True love, with an evil lust 
Destiny is how you said you knew we were meant to be 
We knew with each parting day, that our silent love will destroy us 
But it wasn't enough time, and this was an addicting crime 
The warmth of your love is the only thing that restarts my heart
As my face circles in your mind even with years apart 
The pain, in my escape is worth it every moment 
To relive the past, that seemed to end all to fast 
Our song that you wrote, reminds me of the hell we knew we would go through
It was too late then to care, we jumped leaving nothing to spare
Your words still hold true, I love you too 
Nothing will ever replace me or you, And the cruelty of this world we knew 
But I do it all over again, Knowing that it would end
Because your the best escape, now and then
