"Before you, my life was like a moonless night. very dark. but there were stars-- points of light and reason. and then you shot across my sky like a meteor. suddenly everything was on fire. there was brilliancy, there was beauty. when you were gone, the meteor had fallen over the horizon. everything went black. nothing had changed. but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see stars anymore."


(V1)
I remember when
you used to make me smile.
I remember when
you would make my day worth while,
but now It's all just filled with smoke.
This thing burnt down,
It made me choke,
and now I'm trapped inside confusion.

(C)
Our love used to be on fire,
but all the flames just went away.
You used to lift me higher,
but now It's time for me to say..
We've grown apart,
It splits my heart,
and now I'm left with these ashes.

(V2)
I remember when
you would kiss me in the rain.
I remember when
you would take away my pain,
but now our fire went away.
I'm here speechless,
nothin' left to say..
and now I'm finding a way out.

and now It's time for me to say..

It splits my heart,
and now I'm left with these ashes.

(B)
How could this happen to us?
We were so close and in love.
I just can't believe
It's endin' this way.
I'm listenin' to my heart,
we each need a brand new start..
and moving on is best for both of us.

(V3)
I remember when
I used to love so strong.
I remember when
It used to be right,
but now It's wrong.
You used to sweep me off my feet,
now all I do is sit and weap...
I wish I could be alright,
but all the feeling's gone.

and now I'm left with these ashes.


The author's comments:
I wrote this before a break-up between me and a guy I dated for four months. We were so close, but the feelings I had just started to fade.
The fire burnt out.
