Long Lost Love Mine was the kiss that you so used to miss, when I was just gone for the day. Now I'm always here and I'm ever so near, but you couldn't be further away. Mine were the eyes that saw all sunny skies, a future so bright, warm and clear but the torrents of tears and me fighting my fears, made all but the blues disappear Mine was the voice that you picked as your choice for every "I Love You" you heard and even though it's still said every night before bed my tone says I don't mean a word Long lost love... oh where did it go? I know it won't change but I still need to know. Long lost love... the fire has died a promise is all I have left by my side. We're watching each other grow old... left here with nothing to hold... and nothing is ever as cold.... as long lost love. Wanting to die as I'm living this lie and wading through rivers of tears, mine is the heart that's been torn all apart, our love has been lost now for years Long lost love... oh where did it go? I know it won't change but I still need to know. Long lost love... the fire has died a promise is all I have left by my side We're watching each other grow old.... left here with nothing to hold... and nothing is ever as cold... as long lost love Mine was the smile that lasted a while just hearing you call out my name. Now when you call I feel nothing at all and I wonder if you feel the same? Long lost love... oh where did you go? I know it won't change but I still need to know. Long lost love.... the fire has died a promise is all I have left by my side We're watching each other grow old... left here with nothing to hold... and nothing is ever as cold... as long lost love. We're watching each other grow old. We're left here with nothing to hold.... and nothing is ever as cold.... as long lost love. -Jeannie Minor, Cornell Minor 12/20/2015
