If love could speak for you my dear
Then this jumbled piece of scratch would make sense
Like leftover coffee on the tongue fragrantly bitter sweet it lingers
That first I love you with that cheesy howl from Can you feel the love tonight
Virgin lips linger slowly like a delicate piece of glass
As I kiss my friendship goodbye to the best friend of mine
Three years of struggle but it feels like child's play
Leftover corsages with blooms long gone by
Thoughts drifting in I cannot breathe
Clever dreams skating by as it all peels away like a butterfly's trappings
I look into deep hazel eyes knowing it all could go to waste a jungle of alimony
The clocks creaks out of tune
Pulsating heart seems to leap and fade
Can't find the right words to say
Except that my heart bears witness
I love you though I cannot see where I am
The photographs are cracked and my past is not spot clean
But it all fades away
Like Alice in Wonderland
Love's madness descends
Free falling
Will it last forever ?
