The Forest

I lost myself within a forest

Of beautiful browns and greens

I don't regret it for a moment

My time among the trees

I laughed and danced and sang

Within that lovely wood

I wish even now that I'd have stayed

And if it were possible I would

Sad things went on in that place

Most that I could bear

But there were others that i couldn't take

For they made my poor heart tear

It happened more than once, that I tried to leave there

I almost made it out too

But i began to miss the sweet air

Just as I began to miss you

Love for you is what brought me

Away from the plain blue sky

Because the only thing I wanted to see

Was the forest of your eyes

The sin that made me numb

Is starting to fade away

I only fight it because I'll feel dumb

If I keep doing this the same

Why? Oh why,

Are your eyes burned in my head?

My oh my

Could this be happening again?

Why do I keep wandering

To these familiar woods?

It's not that i don't want to stay

I'm not sure if I should

No longer am I welcome

There is silence in the trees

No longer can I call this home

No more soft whispers in the breeze

I wish I could reach out and touch you

The way I did before

I'd give up anything I have

To be able to hold you just once more

How dreadful is this sin

To still love you in my heart

How terrible to want to kiss your lips

And never have ours part

Do not feel guilty or frustrated

For none of this is your fault

I would not have changed this

Even if I could go back to the start
