Fading light

It'll be time to close the book,
the story's about the end
It's like spring is over
and flowers won't grow anymore
Things aren't like
they used to be before
We can't go on like this
'cause..

Chorus:
Our love is
a fading light
End of the movie
the screen goes black
The clock strikes 12
Time to go,
my prince charming,
I can't be here anymore
It's the middle of the night
and we're a fading light.

The wind Blows stranger
separating us
We can't come closer
anymore
The two of us
used to be like one
like the sea and the sky
together but we didn't realise
we were separated by the skyline
We're that star that won't shine anymore

(chorus:
Our love is
a fading light
End of the movie
the screen goes black
The clock strikes 12
Time to go,
my prince charming,
I can't be here anymore
It's the middle of the night
and we're a fading light.

End of the show
time's up
stand up and clap
So good bye
'cause we're a fading light

This is a very good song. The thing with song lyrics on TI is that it's hard to figure out the beat of the song, and in turn difficult to know whether the rhythm flows correctly to make it sound good. I'm looking forward to hearing it sung someday. :)

I can say for sure that this is a lot deeper than Taylor *Swift lyrics! (And Swift is only famous for her lyrics.) I love your rhyme scheme and chorus.

Well, I can't say I'm an expert on music, but I think you've found your talent. Good luck on getting your song published. It deserves it.

This is such a sad song. I love how you allude to those common endings. :) I think we can all relate to the feeling. </3
