It hurts that you can't own people - 

And it hurts when they leave your side;

And when the song that they sing

Slowly ceases to ring,

It hurts that your heart has died.

 

But the hurt doesn't last for a lifetime,

And perhaps that's what hurts us the most.

For with time we forget

The entrancing duet,

Remembering only its ghost.
