I danced with you
On the fingers of the rose-red dawn,
I walked with you
Along the ribbon of highway moonlight,
I watched with you
From the beginning of time,
And then I sat alone
For the rest of eternity.
At first we held hands,
Your fingers wrapped tightly around mine,
Then we held eyes,
Yours anxiously gripping my own,
Finally we held memories,
Tingling with the promise of love,
But in the end all we held
Were the shattered hopes of once upon a time.
You could say we shared love.
You could say we shared time.
But the one thing that's true,
The one thing we surely shared,
Was the chance to give the other up,
The chance to leave the other in the cold,
The chance to kiss someone into oblivion,
And close your eyes and turn your back when they came running back…
Times are better with someone
Things seem clearer with someone
Senses are heightened when you're with someone
There's nothing at all.
I'm simply with you
And yet alone all the same…
When the future has been predicted and seen
Means nothing at all.
