And so the Heart

Days of wide-eyed wonder
Nights of youthful lust
The highlights of the journey from dust to dust
Life once full of living
Death once held at bay
The two become much closer day by day

And so the heart confesses
That it never really knew
Exactly what it wanted
Or needed - it’s true
And so the heart remembers
Only what it chooses to
And so the heart remembers you

We spent our time forgetting
To remember all of it
Life was lived and burned bit by bit
So much feeling lost in
The fog of memory
We were making love not history

And so the heart confesses here to you
And so the heart undresses someone new

A thousand moments later
We realize it’s all gone
All of what was said and most of what was done
Days of wide-eyed wonder
Nights of youthful lust
The highlights of the journey from dust to dust
