The Last Lines

The fractured night and†in the distance
† The stars, they shiver, blue
I loved her. Oh, how I loved her
† And sometimes, she loved me too

It was on nights like these that I held her
And I kissed her under the stars
† Oh, she loved me, she never told me but she loved me
† And for a moment I thought the world was ours

I couldnít keep her, no matter what I couldn't keep her
I did the wrong things, but they donít matter now
Discontented soul, far away
I could have served you better but I didnít know how

She made me suffer and I made her suffer
But no more, thereís no need for that now
I donít know if I love her, but how I loved her
At least as much as she would allow

I hear the night,†I hear the silence
† Blacker†without her, in hours, the minutes pass
And these words, they form in defiance
And lines fall like dew on the grass

Now thereís anotherís kisses on her
Heís gazing into those infinite eyes
Love is brief, forgetting lasts so long
These are the last lines that I will write.
