I wish I could slowly open up my veins
and let all my blood fall at your feet.
Than maybe you could see, how much
I love you, but that is not to be - because
your eyes are close to me.
I wish I could tell you so many things of
what you mean to me - but your ears are
also close for me. As I am kneeling here
before you and my life is slowly draining
out of me, all I can think of is - memories
of you and me.
The days of fun and laughter that you and
I used to share, when everything we did
was new and everything was fun and the
love I felt for you was from the bottom of
my heart. Now those days are gone and
our youth has gone with them. But my love
still remains the same.
If you could only hear and you could only see,
than maybe you would know - how in life I'm
slowly dying and all I have now are memories
that are nothing but Shadows Of The Past...
