I watched as the words came out

The promises I would soon learn that you couldn't keep

I told you not to go

And even though I was lied to

I still loved you

I was prisoner in a cage

And the bars were your love

But I never wanted to escape you

I'll never forget the day they took you from me

I'll never forget the ache in my heart

The silent scream and the way the world stopped

My heart was ripped paper

Your life was ripped from you

I told you not to go

And now since marriage is so out of the question

And now that "Till death do us part" no longer applies

I'll keep you forever in my dreams

So I'll see you when I close my eyes
