Bittersweet Retreat

Our song is love and loss
Seeing you love a little less
The passion and the pain
Cooling, becoming heartless;
I loved and learned and grew
I forgot all the dreams I knew
When I planted all my seeds of hope
In a future that was totally you.

I was sure if I kept trying
You would mend the error of your ways
You would wake up and see these
As the best of all possible days.
I would bet you never have it
As good as what you have it with me.
You can try if you want
But I think you'll be sad at what you see
I'll be gone to another
And, you'll be trying it all over again.
You'll wake up someday
But, I am not really too sure when.

Our song is love and loss
Seeing you love a little less
The passion and the pain
Cooling, becoming heartless;
I loved and learned and grew
I forgot all the dreams I knew
When I planted all my seeds of hope
In a future that was totally you.

You could have had it all
The perfect love that appreciates you so.
You might have seen the light
But, you forced me out and made me go.
Maybe you are looking hard
To find some kind of magazine star
Sorry my lovely dreamer
But, that's not how real people are.
We don't have makeup
And stylists to follow us around.
Life is not a photograph
Appreciate the gifts you have found.
