One Lonely Dark Night

One Lonely Dark Night 

The old gray village lay in the landscape of pain
It was a cold night in our home 
Once our home felt what Love was all about
but that had been some time ago
I had to ask myself over and over as the years past
How do you walk away from someone you love? 
There he is standing by the door in silence 
it was a cold dark night my love had taken flight
I watched as his love made its way out the door
the spell that invented no words
I don't really know what made my heart run so cold 
but that one cold night his love was getting old
The light of his love turned cold 
like the black in the night
inside my broken heart
tell me to never look back on what was good 
never look back on the life we had 
We once had so much love to give
But time moved so fast in our life 
Love started to slip away
We have shared so much together
We Laught and had so much fun
we had our tears
when love had gone like the summers sun
all that we had is now all dead and gone 
my heart is on the run
We must walk away
and allow ourselves to heal from the pain
I know one day you will be happy 
and one day so will I 
O careless love I hear my ill spirit 
Sob into the winter sky's
each blood cell weep day and night 
my heart were at my throat
my soul cry's out for this old pain to end
it hurts like Hell deep within.
