And We Danced

And we were dancing in the snow last year,
The moon glowing softly in your hair.
It almost doesn’t hurt anymore if I look past,
As it would be last night and not last year.

Your skin and your pride are taken from me.
I would give everything for a magic potion,
One that would make you love me; longer than just one night.
But even still, my arms and nights would remain empty.

Once more, let Time give me the strength to face one more day.
I lay naked and helpless in the morning, and yet never felt so strong.
Just one more day, then Strength and I would destroy all the walls around me.
Only a door left standing for the Pain to seep in and let the Love inside.

And we were dancing in the snow last year,
The moon glowing softly in your hair.
It almost doesn’t hurt anymore if I look past,
As it would be last night and not last year.

If I try to reach you, you are gone.
No one could ever be so near and yet so far.
Not even Silence can say how deep.
Like an unsent letter I forever keep,
That breaks as I look in your eyes.

This letter will be unsent as well.
I didn’t write my most beautiful song on paper,
I wrote it on your face with my fingers, can’t you see?
What my mouth left you in kisses, look at your skin and read.
Remember where my tongue was; search for my song in your hair.
If you want to understand my feelings, you must look for me inside yourself.
Look inside yourself and you will see I’m there.

I open my arms, ready to receive you. Come to my heart.
I will heal you; let yourself fall and give me all your Pain.
Run away, run away from me, live your life without me.
Wherever you go my love will be waiting for you.

And we were dancing in the snow last year,
The moon glowing softly in your hair.
It almost doesn’t hurt anymore if I look past,
As it would be last night and not last year.

And we were dancing in the snow last year,
The moon glowing softly in your hair.
If you don’t see me anymore, then I’m no longer important,
And I will melt like the snow last year.
