Used To Be

They always thought their love would be forever.
Now shadows cast an ancient past
upon the life that they once shared.
Death, rebirth, and ever after.
Once you filled their life with laughter.
The shadows of your life are stalking you.

Oh, how you wish you'd never found
the gain that led to that almighty pain.
They rose so high within the sky of mind
that never could they find return again.
Deep, the sigh reborn in ancient skies.

Infant of another realm,
levels within levels that are real.
Dream within a dream come true,
reaching out for you.
Unerringly, your soul will make you feel
each slip of tongue, each good undone,
amid the many moments of your love.

You used to think you knew so much.
How is it that you came to miss her touch?
You said that you would never let her go.
Now shadows of the night are all aglow
with images of loss and emptiness.

You always thought your love would be forever.
Now shadows cast an ancient past
upon a life that once was shared with love.
Death, rebirth, and ever after.
Once you filled their life with laughter.
Estranged, the changes haunting you,
in all those memories of used to be...
