Places, passing time
They leave me, I don’t know why
I walk by, looking down
While they bomb their battleground.

Hearts as cold as freezing ice
Hide the winter of their souls
Where black roses year-round sprout
Symbolizing what we lost.

Older spirits say to me
“Only fools stand alone”
But as lonely as things may get
I’ll never forget our better days. 

Shining down on me tonight
Is a full moon that makes me cry
And as my tears form a small lake
I think “this will be my resting place”.

So as the waves cover me
I think of the battleground they left me in
“Poor fools” my last words were these 
“They don’t know the water can set you free”.
