NOT KNOWING WHY

I FEEL LONELY HAPPINESS, YET PAINFUL FEAR

FOR THR ONE ONE LOVE I HELD SO CLOSE AAND SO CLEAR

EVERDAY I SIT SO AIMLESSELY WONDERING WHY

OUR ENTIRE LIVES QUICKLY PASSES US BY

WHY IS IT WE STILL CANNOT BELIEVE

WHAT HAS BEEN BLATENLY SET BEFORE YOU AND ME

CAN WE UNBIND THE TENSION AND SET OUR HEARTS TO BEAT FREE

AGAIN SO WE MAY BREATH FREE

OR IS ALONE WHERE WE HAVE CHOSEN TO BE

WHEN TOGETHR A COUPLE NEVER CLOSER WE REFUSE TO SEE

LIFE AS WE KNOW IT SLOWLY PASSES BEFORE OUR EYES

YET OUR CHILDREN GROW UP FASTER THAN OUR DOUBTS MOVE THE SKIES

THIS WAS THE TIME OF OUR LIVES TO HOLD EACH OTHERS HANDS WITH LOVE

HOWEVER DIVORCE HAD TAKEN US BOTH BY SURPRISE

NOW BROKEN

OUR HEARTS PERCH ON A LEDGE EARLY MORNINGS

LIKE THAT OF A MORNING DOVE

WAITING TO ONCE AGAIN MAKE A MATING CALL TO ANOTHER LONELY LOVE

NOW WAS THE TIME TO MAKE THAT CONSTRUCTIVE MOVE TOWARDS OUR FUTURE

AS IT STILL CONTINUES TO OVERWHELM ALL THE GOOD MEMORIES

AND THEY PASS US BY NOT KNOWING WHY

ALL THE YEARS TOGETHER GREW LONGER AND HARDER

NO ONE WANTED TO SEE US TEARING EACH OTHER APART

WHILE WE LIVED TOGETHER OR ALONE

ONLY OUR TEARS AND FEARS CAUSED PAIN WE LEARNED TO DISGUISE

TOO MANY CLOUDS HAVE NOW DIMMED OUR SHINY DAY

WHEN WE ONCE BELIEVED IN CARING AND SHARING IN ALL POSSIBLE WAYS

COULD WE HAVE BEEN SO BLIND OUR HEARING COULD NOT MAKE

OUR EYES SPARKLE IN THAT SUNSHINING WAY

FAREWELL MY LOVE
