A thousand days

A thousand nights

Each more intense

And I need you by my side.

Long nights full of tears

Followed by mornings with you near…

All fade from my memory

Slowly they become unclear

The memories are gone

But you’re still in my heart

When I hear our old songs

Or look up at the stars

You were my happy ending

A fairy tale come true

No one was more perfect to me than you.

But now it’s all over

The curtains are drawn

You’re a good actor

But now everyone is gone.

Think of me when you’re holding her

And feel my hurt

As the memories burn
