Tell me you love me, even if it's a lie.
Kiss me just once, before you kiss me good-bye.
Let your eyes peel the layers of my soul.
Touch me once more before emptiness takes toll.
Mi-Lady, my love, by chance or by fate,
By today's goodbye, our tomorrow must wait.
The time that we've shared, a sail on the sea,
Fading into the sun of cherished memory.
A walk on the deck during hurricane winds.
A dance with temptation where Darkness descends.
If angel by day or demon by night,
A life, (without you), stands to lose all light.
From vaunted Lord to lowly clown.
A jester bearing his tarnished crown.
I watch time with you disappear,
Bleeding away slowly in silent fear.
Set still in the window, with the stem broken,
Cries the gift of my love on whispers unspoken.
A flower that died before it came to bloom,
A beauty defied by its death in the womb.
A treasure deeply sought, lost to the eye.
By a glossless stare, by a breathless sigh.
A scream from eternity perched on the sill,
If it don't blossom tonight, surely it never will.
So won't you tell me you love me, even if it's a lie?
Kiss me just once today, for tomorrow I die.
It's the little things you take for granted,
That'll mean the most to you when they're gone.
