I've been listening
To untold tales.
I've been hearing
Forgotten wails.

As I sit and smoke
I watch the sea.
Something broke
Something within me.
I've heard rumors
Coming from within.
I've fallen before
I've fallen again.

She whispered
"True hearts will never silence."

I couldn't help it
"True love needs no guidance!"

I hear the shallow waves
Marking young graves.
I went and found my own way
I went and found my own grave.

You've been down this road
Time and again.
Too many hearts have been widowed
From unrighteous whims. 

Come dance
One last dance.
Give romance
One last chance.
