denruT segaP Every love that claims me Tells me I’m the first, and last Maybe so for a moment But what was now has now passed And you’ve made yourself a liar So you set your words on fire In the flames your letters cast The alphabet never got so hot Than when you said your love was not Who can say what pages are meant to be turned When love is only a chapter in the book of life But even though the leaf has flipped The story remains By the transparent graces of the paper I can still read it backwards Now the beginning is the end And I’ve never loved at all
