would have, but could not

have you ever heard a joke, or read an article, or looked at a painting, or listened to a song, or watched a touching, intimate moment – and the first thought that comes to your mind is to tell him about it, because you know that he would have loved it?

and then you realize that he is not part of your life anymore – so you could not do all that.

and your smile stops there. and you sigh instead.

and you bite your lips hard as if that could help obliterating the thought.

and you feel some tears rolling down your cheeks.

your wound is healed, but the scar remains.

true love

for a second, i was in control
i had it once, i lost it though
and all along the fire below would rise

and i wish you could have let me know
what’s really going on below
i’ve lost you now, you let me go
but one last time

tell me you love me
if you don’t then lie
oh lie to me

remember once upon a time
when i was yours and you were blind
the fire would sparkle in your eyes
and mine

so tell me you love me
if you don’t then lie
oh lie to me
just tell me you love me
if you don’t then lie
oh lie to me
if you don’t then lie
oh lie to me

and call it true
call it true love
call it true
call it true love
